Dear Mr Fison
My correspondent Mr Curr
Chief Insp. Sheep has sent me some
names for Queensland and one for W. Austa
the Right Revd Dr Salvado - to whom I have
sent circular as first move. Now it has
suggested itself to me that we could get
a list of names of Magistrates, police officers
officials of all kinds +c from Directories. Do
you think you could sometime when
in Melbourne enquire at Library (Public)
- or elsewhere - Gordon + Gotch for instance
if such are to be procured or inspected.
I have sent to all Inspectors of sheep in Victoria
And shall do so as regards N.S.W + Queensland
West Australia is a closed book at present.
I am especially anxious to connect W. Aust
with Port Lincoln if possible.

The Revd Lorimer Fison
