Abstract

Notes of a public meeting to consider addressing the Lieut-Governor on the subject of quit rent including draft of the address pointing out that it "must involve the Colony in utter ruin" since the best lands were settled at a purely nominal rent and "that eleven years ago this district remained in a state of nature, that by great exertions and outlay of capital attended with great privations we have conferred a value upon the Land". Public meetings and petitions 5th July, 1832, Waterloo Point. From Cotton Family Papers C7/59
