"By eight o'clock, most of the vessels in the harbour were decorated in their accustomed costume, honorary to the occasion; and as soon as the barge, with its illustrious burden, retired from the shore, a salute of 19 guns was fired from Dawes Battery. Launches, barges, cutters, pinnaces, and wherries, were seen crowded with those who appeared determined on catching a parting glimpse of the object of their profound veneration and fondest regard, who for some time stood up, uncovered, and kept bowling adieu as he passed. Never did Sydney Cove look so attractive and gay as upon this occasion; and the shores were lined with spectators innumerable".....
