him/her know that what he/she is doing is wrong, and his/her time would be better spent
correcting uncorrected text on the site?"
P.S. I did find something very useful too - for the first time I've found
confirmation that ALL of the free settlers arrived in the Derwent in January 1804. As you
may or may not know, there are no extant passenger lists for the two voyages from Port
Phillip to VDL.
