L003 - 'Hints to Emigrants' by Henry Capper, South Australia Company, 1838
L003 - 'Hints to Emigrants' by Henry Capper, South Australia Company, 1838
These are practical details for people considering migrating to South Australia. It includes principles and legislation on which the colony is established, arrangements for purchasing land, ensuring there are enough labourers, history, geography, shipping, and the development of South Australia Company. In particular, there are details for passengers - fares, what they should take with them, and conditions on the voyage.
Although this was published in early 1838 - when Donald McLean had already arrived in the colony - it describes the conditions which he was experiencing. It was the 2nd edition, so there was an earlier edition while Donald was still in Scotland. He might not have seen the first edition, but maybe some key elements were shared in other ways.
There is a third edition, published in June 1839 which can be accessed via the State Library of Victoria - https://viewer.slv.vic.gov.au/?entity=IE1740388&file=FL18972797&mode
