Letters from Victorian Pioneers
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.
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.
