These tracts take the form of morality tales, letters advising groups such as young girls and unmarried men about how they should behave on board emigrant ships, and guides for families preparing to emigrate and what they should do upon arrival. These guides provide both religious and practical guidance, such as advice on how and where to seek employment upon arrival in the colonies.
