Does anyone have any poems written by Major (later Sir) Thomas Mitchell (1792 - 1895) - an explorer and surveyor who was responsible for surveying much of the eastern part of Australia.
He wrote 55 poems, but I cannot find a copy of any. I think they may have some in one of the state libraries, but I cannot access them.
Can anyone help? I do need them by the weekend, (not putting any pressure on!!
) as I want at least one to put in our July newsletter.
On 1st July, 1936, Mitchell found the Loddon River, which he originally called by its aboriginal name, Yarrayne.
