The Lady Nelson arrrived at Port Phillip on the 21st
January, 1804. The encounters with the natives described
by Brown in his rough field-notes were in all probability the
first in which whites and blacks were brought into intimate
contact at Port Dalrymple.
Robert Brown was a passenger on board the Lady Nelson
when that vessel was sent by Governor King in December,
1803, to assist Lieut.-Governor Collins transport his
party either to Port Dalrymmle or the Derwent River, as he
might select.
Brown when on the Lady Nelson was a passenger
with a mission-botanical research work-and his
voyage in the colonial brig enabled him to engage in field
Work at the Kent's Group, at Port Dalrymple, and at Port
Phillip, before he passed on, still in the Lady Nelson, to the
Derwent River, where he devoted himself to his Scientific
studies for nearly six months.
Includes extracts from his field notes.
