Curator Talk: The First Fleet Journal of Lieutenant Ralph Clark

with Louise Anemaat

 

Ambitious yet easily slighted, brave yet with a tendency to worry about his health, Ralph Clark volunteered to sail with the First Fleet in the hope of gaining promotion.  

Written in part to his cherished wife, his `beloved Betsey Alicia’ who he was forced to leave behind, the journal he wrote during his tour of service is an intensely intimate and personal document.
