  • 1856

The diary covers the period May-November 1856. The anonymous writer, a farmer's son, and his brother appear to have had gold claims at Whitehorse, near Ballarat for about three years. The writer then describes life aboard ship on a voyage (without his brother) from Melbourne on the 'James Baines' bound for Liverpool, as far as Cape Clear.
