THE QUARANTINED PASSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 3 January 1877
THE QUARANTINED PASSENGERS. The experiences of the passengers of the Australia since their temporary captivity on the lonely isle of Motuihi have not been of the pleasantest. Up to yesterday they had subsisted on rice, beef, and eggs, but were entirely without tea, sugar, and other necessaries. We are informed that they would have been left wholly unprovided for, had not the articles above-mentioned been sent down by the agent of the Pacific Mail Company for the use of tho Australia. The captain of the Australia, being aware that tho quarantined paasengcrs wero without provisions, refused to take tho supplies on board, but like a good Samaritan caused them to bo landed at the quarantiuefisland for the sustenance of the forlorn sixty-two, who were temporarily incarcerated amongst those picturesque scones. The passengers say they are indebted to this timely forethought of the Captain of the Australia for being saved from severe privations. Yesterday, a quantity of provisions was taken...

A crowd came to the shore, and one who acted as spokesman called out &quot; If it wasn't for your grey hairs, yon Avould be ducked in the tide.&quot; The doctor adopted a conciliatory tone and explained matterSjiwMch had the effect of considerably molifyiug their feelings...
SECOND MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 3 January 1877
SECOND MESSAGE. TO &quot;STAR&quot; FROM PASSENGERS DIRECT. (To the Editor of the STAR.) r . &quot; Tho passengers think it right to inform the public through the medium of the Star that they arc suffering considerable risk to life during their detention in quarantine from the absence of medical attendance: Up to this hour Dr Philson has paid one visit tp the Island, but did not land, and c^jn professed to prescribe for some of the passengers at a distance of a boat's length from the shore. The patients feeling how ludicrous the advice given might be, refused on the spot to take the remedies suggested. Neither were they informed where the remedies were to oome from. The. passengers gave Dr. Philson notice that if their wants were not attended to they would violate the quarantine regulation. The greatest possible disatisfaction and revolutionary spirit prevails. No sickness is here, except some old chronic illness.&quot; . -
