Transcription - Page 4


Batman's visit to Port Phillip ..... He
married in Gippsland a native woman called Lizzie,
and went to reside at Acheron .... Later on
his wife died, and he afterwards married
a Christian native woman called Annie.
Three of his children died in infancy, and
and his son David (aged 10 years) and his wife
died within a month of one another."
Barrack was at Coranderrk at the time
Mr Graham Berry left Victoria to act
as Agent-General in England.

Again thanking you, and hoping
that I am not imposing on your good
nature in asking a second lot of in-
formation (which is very interesting to me
after reading your book),
I am, yours sincerely
J. Guthridge
