Saturday 31 December 1836

[, on board the wrote. | Read source notes.]

DECEMBER 31.- This morning we received intimation that the Governor had ordered ten men from the Buffalo to assist in getting our luggage from the shore. Accordingly they came, and, with their help, the men harnessing themselves to the trucks, all the heavy cases of goods and printing material were brought up. The latter was arranged in a rush hut, whence the Proclamation and other orders from the Governor were soon afterwards issued.
