PREFACE

Ar the suggestion of a number of friends I have been induced to publish for private circulation a few of my speeches. To these I have ventured to add some reminiscences of my early school life in the old Sydney College (now the Sydney Grammar School) written for the School Magazine at the request of the present Head Master and some of the students. I have also included Obituary Notices (written by myself) of my much-loved parents, whose names were associated with the early days of the colony, my grandfather having arrived in Sydney in 1790 and my mother in 1824.

I am fully aware that these papers possess no literary merit, and would have no interest for the general reader; but they may serve as a small memento for my children, and for those much-valued friends amongst whom I have for so many years resided, and who have aided me in my humble efforts to advance the welfare of Camden and its inhabitants.
