There is still another name for this locality, which you got
here from old Emma and Louise when you was here. This
name included Tom's Creek and of course old Kangaroo
's country Dighton

In my letters to Mr. Smyth in 1862 I omitted Bushy
and Top plains (Bragolong) as I then thought
all the four above families or tribes were included
in the Bragolong or men of the West. I found, however,
that there are a number of Blacks still left out:

Billy Wood - Edward -Mackay. The Clarks, Montgomery,
but I suppose they should belong to those here or Toms Creek,
all of them, however are the Bragolongs. With best compliments,
Yours truly F.A. Hagenauer
