Australia and Homeward

Excerpt from Australia and Homeward This book was written almost entirely at sea. I should have been glad if I could have availed myself of more help from reliable and experienced authors. I have given the names of those whose writings have been of service to me, and whose valuable works I fortunately had with me. Much that I have written of the natives, animals, birds, and of the country, is the result of personal observation. The reader, I think, will see that I must have taken a deep interest in everything pertaining to the home of our antipodean friends, who are not only like ourselves, a Christian people, but descendants from the same stock, and fellow-subjects of the same great Empire, and, equally with us, admirers of, and loyal to. Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria. Perhaps in no other part of Her Majesty's wide domain has there been such rapid progress in agriculture, arts, education, and all other things embraced by the term "national prosperity."
