Abstract

Some months ago there was handed to me from St. George's Rectory, Hobart, a small packet, on which was written " Old Tasmanian Letters from Dr. C. " It was naturally supposed they were connected with the early history of the church (St. George's, Battery Point, Hobart), in which I was much interested. I looked forward eagerly to reading them, thinking they might have to do with the dispute between Sir John Franklin and Captain Montagu over building the tower. They might contain a note from Lady Franklin when she sent her five guineas towards a peal of bells, which, alas, never materialised. They might even be part of that very willing theological controversy between Bishop Nixon and Dr. Henry Phibbs Fry!
