Further comments

Minnie says her ship is the 'Francisco', but it likely to be the 'San Francisco'.
She puts 'about December 1855' for her arrival in Australia, so I have put 01/12/1855.
She says she has lived in Hobart, except for 40 years, except for a brief residence in New Zealand.
She gives her children's addresses, but they are difficult to read.
