Text: Matthew was made a deacon on 24 Nov 1824 and priested 6 days later on 30 Nov. Then just 20 days after that he received a chaplain's warrant. It would seem the rush was because he wanted to join a ship en route for Sydney. This was the ship Mariner which arrived in NSW 10 Jul 1825 with Meares, his wife and two children.
