Summary

A lecture recounting his experiences of the second expedition of Ernest Giles from northern South Australia to the western coast of Western Australia. It discusses the conditions on their expedition in detail. A possible reason for the separate publication was that the article was an inaccurate report rather than the full text of his paper, fully reproduced in the offprint.
