Mr. Kitchen has put on board a supply of pigs, sheep, poultry etc., for the
use of the passengers, besides an ample supply of provisions of all kinds. We have been shown the Bill of Fare, which we would like to publish for the satisfaction of those having friends on board, but we are unable to make room for it. The Aurora has an able crew, commanded by the careful and experienced Captain Ross, and everything, so far seems conductive to a comfortable and prosperous voyage.
Sept. 13
