Burthen was 570 30/95 tons. H. Tyler is the Master (captain?) who submitted the manifest to the Collector of Customs for the District of New Orleans. There were 328 passangers listed (name, age, sex, occupation, countries to which they belonged, and country in which they intended to live), All were listed as farmers, even the 2 to 16 year olds! However, it must be noted that Farmer was at the top of the occupation column and no other occupation was given to specify anything different. The destination of all was the U.S. but again it must be said that "United States" was at the top of the column and no other destination was specified. The ages of some passengers were not reported. Included was a note that reported the addition of 20 unnamed infants. Most passengers were from German states, but some were from France or Switzerland. There were no deaths on the voyage!
