A small personal notebook accompanies the logbook of the ‘Meteor’, and is currently held by the State Library of New South Wales. Captain Thomas Verney made six short entries in this notebook, each detailing an interesting episode from his life, or simply his personal thoughts.

It is likely he made these entries in his latter years, as his hand-writing appears shakier than what it does in the logbook of the ‘Meteor.’ The final two entries are particularly difficult to transcribe.

Entries, in chronological order:

Yawl Spray
Liquor Traffic
Coupang, Island of Timor
Bullock Catching
Lost Industry
What I Have Seen
