The Quaker City dropped anchor in the Gulf of Cagliari, some two miles from the town, at 9:00 p.m. on 13 (not 12) October. Captain Duncan wrote, “An official informed us that cholera existed at Cagliara and that foul bills of health were issued to every vessel leaving— We had heard enough and hastily leaving returned to the ship” (Charles C. Duncan 1867, entry for 13 Oct). The excursionists were eager to maintain the ship’s clean bill of health, having already suffered great inconvenience and disappointment as a result of quarantine restrictions.

SLC to Jane Lampton Clemens and Family, 13, 15, and 17 Oct 1867, Cagliari, Italy (UCCL 00151), n. 1.
