Abstract

Quaker Collection. Letters from James Backhouse in England to George Washington Walker in Van Diemen's Land, written between 1842-6. They give a flavour of Quaker sensibility, views on debt, marrying-out and so on and demonstrate the networks of Quakerism (especially since there are quite a few letters of recommendation). There are also subsidiary issues such as the effects of the depression in England and Bicheno's botanical interests.
