That open air zoo wouldn't be Werribee Open Range Zoo, would it? :)

Yes. Are you local ? His house was Chirnside Park - it was used as a seminary for a while and the house is still there but most of the grounds is the open air Zoo . Thanks for the file :D

Hi Annise, I'd like to read Section 12, John Hepburn if I may. What a great find this book is!
Thanks,

All yours. Yes it is interesting to hear what some of the early settlers thought. The meeting of 2 such different cultures was never going to be easy. And still isn't at times.

Hello. I am new here but have read all of the guides and I think I am ready to jump in. Could I claim section 18, Captain Foster Fyans?

Apologies in advance if I do anything wrong or out of turn.

Also as these are letters from mostly British settlers to Australia, will my American accent be a problem? It's Midwestern, which here is considered quite neutral.

Sorry - missed your post . We never worry about accents and in this case we are talking abou 1830 when most of the writers would have been born overseas .
I'll put you down for 18
