For some years Elizabeth Fry had been concerned about the plight of female convicts sentenced to transportation to New South Wales. Through her efforts the organization of the transports and the conditions that the convicts met on their arrival in New South Wales were gradually improving. In this letter, however, her judgment is misplaced. James Hall, the surgeon whom she recommends, was assaulted by female prisoners in December 1823 when the convict ship, the Brothers, had been at sea for a week. In a celebrated series of court actions between the officers of the ship, James Hall's lack of tact was seen as the primary cause of the trouble. He was not employed again by the convict service.

From the description of Letter, Plashet House [Essex], to Sir T. Byam Martin, 1822 October 22. (Pennsylvania State University Libraries). WorldCat record id: 33890797
