Description

It can be well to say in the opening of this book that Among the scenes therein shown are taken from a land blessed by God and blighted by man, a Penal Colony. Western A ustralia, the poorest and the loveliest of the entire A ustralias, has received from the mother country only her shame and her crime. I can’t write excuses for the many faults and crudities in this first book: if nobody else can prize the volume, I myself can. Not for its literary worth, indeed ;but for lots of hours of pleasure which its composition has given to me. Whatever merit It can be denied, it should certainly possess that, if merit it be, of realism. Among the scenes shown are memories, not imaginings, things which clamored for recognition, and I have written them here. The A uthor.
