Here is chapter 19

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/reminiscences_19_petrie_128kb.mp3

duration 25.23

I do hope this is OK i have been having a bit of a problem with the microphone with intermittent muffling occurring. I am not entirely sure why this is happening. Maybe as i use a lapel microphone just turning my head as I read alters the recording levels. I will do what I can to eliminate this. Just let em know if you think it too bad and I will re-record happily. They are interesting stories

Cheers

Jennifer

I abided by the "errata" note but I think it made more sense before!

Anybody subscribed to this topic might be interested to read what the award-winning novelist Melissa Lucashenko has to say of her novel-in-progress:
I want the book to be out in time for 2023 which is the Brisbane bicentennial. So I can say to people that John Oxley did sail up the river in 1823 and that’s when the penal colony was founded but there could have been a treaty in 1824 and things could have been incredibly different. There was a colonial figure named Tom Petrie, who actually grew up with the blackfellas then, and had good, respectful relationships with Aboriginal people all his life. And so the book asks, what if Tom Petrie was in charge, rather than Governor Logan?
Best,

Barbara
