From Ireland chapter 3

The journey was almost over when Mr Lynch who had become like a father to the Angles since Arnold had died, announced he would hand the girls over the a group of Irish folk who settled people like them in the first few weeks until they decided what was to become them.

From Ireland Chapter 2

As the voyage unfolded many things happened and some of the older folk were sick and some died. It was in these cases the girls were used to great advantage.

The first time they were asked to help was when an old man who had befriended the girls and made sure they were fed and bedded in a suitable way and had stood up for them during arguments. He even became embroiled in fights when some of the passengers tried to move the girls on when the ship arrived in various ports for food and water.

Now Mr. McCauley was in need of their care.
