Abstract

A series of letters from GP Boultbee, Brook Lodge, to Dr George Fordyce Story, dated from 1864 to 1865. The letters reflect the efforts of Boultbee to purchase a sewing machine from London, and Story's work in assisting him to do this. Boultbee also describes his attempts at farming on the East Coast of Tasmania, detailing the varieties of crops he sowed, the process of harvesting them, and the failures of some of these crops through blight in 1864. From Cotton Family Papers C7/172-174
