Excerpt from Excursions in New South Wales, Western Australia, and Van Diemen's Land
It is with this conviction that I have been induced to Offer to the public the substance Of my note-book, trusting that it will be found to convey an impartial and correct, though brief and unvarnished account, Of the actual state of things in this portion Of the globe.
I lay no claim to the graces of authorship, nor in a work of this kind, would there have been much Opportunity for displaying them the only Object I have in view is, to convey as accu rate an idea as possible Of the nature and resources of the different settlements; SO that, in the event Of the emigrant undertaking a voyage Of nearly miles, he may not find, on his arrival at his destination, that he has been misled by over drawn accounts or actual mis statements.
This, I regret to say, has been the case with many, who, judging from what they had read.
