Source note for White Log (Tam O’Shanter)

Builder John White sailed for South Australia aboard the Tam O’Shanter with his brother George. He made notes on the voyage between 26 July 1836 and 8 September. The handwritten entries, while not easy to read and featuring idiosyncratic spelling, contain information about sailing and weather conditions, and people and events on board.

The original is held in the State Library of South Australia (PRG 335/2). The transcript used on this website is by Kate Walsh and Bob Sexton.
