Macquarie, Brisbane & Darling on schools for Aborigines

An excellent copy of a rare report, printing a decade of major dispatches from New South Wales Governors on the subjects of the Aborigines of New South Wales.

An excellent copy of a rare report, printing a decade of major dispatches from New South Wales Governors on the subjects of the Aborigines of New South Wales.
In this report are included reports from Macquarie, Brisbane and several by Darling. Macquarie reports the Reverend Cartwright's "Native Institution" at Parramatta (in a report which prints two of Cartwright's letters, dated 1819 & 1820), while the despatches of Brisbane and Darling chiefly deal with the work of the London and Church Missionary Societies, most notably the travails of the Missionary and early linguist L.E. Threlkeld (including comments on his work in preparing grammars and translations).
The work was prepared at the request of Henry Grey, Viscount Howick, in his capacity as Under-Secretary of State for War and the Colonies.
