Indigenous trackers find a boy lost in the scrub

The article is reprinted from the Western Australian of January 1835. It describes the skill of two indigenous trackers - "Migo" and "Molly-Dobbin" who found a lost child after a long and frustrating search through 22 miles of dunes and thick scrub. The trackers persevere when hope is perishing, and are delighted 'beyond all conception' when the boy is finally found. This heartening account was widely reprinted at the time, including in Irwin's State and Position of Western Australia (London 1835).
