Abstract

The following list of Native Words was found among
papers originally in the possession of Rev. William Bedford,
D.D., who succeeded Rev. Robert Knopwood as Principal
Chaplain of Van Diemen's Land in 1823.
Mr. Bedford took a deep interest in the "Native Question,"
and was an active member of the Aboriginal Committee,
an advisory body appointed by Colonel Arthur to
assist the Executive in effectually dealing with the very
difficult Native problems of the time. The list and notes have been copied by myself, and are
an exact reproduction of the original in spelling and composition.
I have not been able, yet, to discover who the writer
"H.W.M." was.
