Letters from Victorian Pioneers

VARIOUS ( - )

A series of letters on the early occupation of the colony, the Aborigines, etc addressed by Victorian pioneers to his Excellency Charles Joseph La Trobe Esq. , Lieutenant-Governor of the Colony of Victoria in response to a circular letter sent by him to a number of early settlers dated 29th July 1853. - It cannot be claimed for these papers that they are infallible records of our early history at every point. ( from the preface), The last section ends with lists of Aboriginal words and phrases as were collected by a lady. I'm in 2 minds about these, I respect her desire to keep a record but do not have any idea of their correctness, but they are there if anyone wants to have a go. And please remember that no one is saying the views in the letters are correct. (Annise)
