Notes

Attributed to Alexander Harris.

“Professor C. M. H. Clark … has asserted that “Alexander Harris” is the pen-name of an unknown writer, and that the work is partly fact and partly fiction. He advances his arguments (with proofs) in the Preface to a reprint of “Settlers and Convicts” published by the Melbourne University Press, 1953”—Bibliography of Australia.
