O’Farrell uses the diary of William Bates, a young Evangelical Presbyterian minister from County Tyrone travelling to Melbourne on the Minehaha in 1858, to illustrate his point. Many of Bates’s fellow immigrants, especially the young men, displayed a ‘larrikin irreligion’, treating religion as an irrelevant joke and its ministers as wowsers to be ridiculed. Bates regretted in his diary: ‘Our young men seem all to be indifferent to religion. ’ The young men ‘crowned the sabbath evening’s impiety’ by locking a clergyman in the watercloset; and next day pelted him with rotten cabbages.

28 On 30 January, Dr Ross was ‘said to have typhus fever but in truth has a cold’ and was fast recovering. 29 But it was a different matter when Manning believed he himself had at last contracted typhus fever at the end of the voyage. He spent 20 February 1840 in bed ‘with the full persuasion that Typhus Fever had taken hold of me’. He believed he had the symptoms severely and remained very ill for four hours, after which Dr Whittaker’s remedies began to relieve his head and stomach. ’ So easily could a hypochondriac come to believe in climate as a cure for supposed typhus fever, when he probably had an ailment such as food poisoning.

At the time of his assisted passage to Australia, Henry had two children (George and Henry) by his first wife, and two (Charles and Susan) by his second wife Mary, the daughter of a blacksmith. 54 One-third of the 483 passengers were under 14, and thirteen of the twenty-nine children born during the passage died.
