Notes for section 6:


Please amplify. I had to turn up the volume on my computer – Checker says it’s 80.3 dB.

3.54-3.57, omission/stumble
…but more or less recent bush-fires had rub- [rubbed out the trail.]

6.04-6.08, repetition
28th December.

18.12-18.16, repetition
…and his hearing being defe- and his hearing being defective…

21.18-21.25 – repetition
…but assurance from a responsible quarter had been given that hospitality might safely be relied on at [——, at] a small sheep station about halfway to Wombeyan…

21.57, omission
The absolute right of this gentleman [to refuse shelter] to a couple of more or less vagabond-looking swaggies is not disputed.

29.33-29.38
Trailing their shadows o'er the far [heard fair] faint down,
And ripening grass,

30.04-30.10, omission
Mittagong is reached in time for a shower [and the evening meal.] Next morning per express to Sydney.

Thanks, Erin! I won't be able to get the recorder I used for this one until some time next week. I'll post on Hartmann to let you know when they are done.

Chapter 6 ready for spot PL! Time for a 20-mile walk before dinner!

With the following one, I replaced the original 'at [blank], a small sheep station' by just saying 'at a small sheep station' - it isn't a brilliant piece of editing but sounds better than re-recording the whole phrase. As these recordings were done around a year ago, so difficult to get the right sound on the corrections.

21.18-21.25 – repetition

Part 6 is spot PL OK - and for all we know, maybe it will accompany walkers on their jaunts!

Anne, this is ready for the catalogue!

Thanks, Anne! Just picked up one error near the end of the summary - 'Hamlet undertook several walks of 400 miles or more and published accounts of them in the Sydney' - should be ... in the Sydney Morning Herald.
