The Life and Labours of George Washington Walker, of Hobart Town, Tasmania

Excerpt from The Life and Labours of George Washington Walker, of Hobart Town, Tasmania This volume if offered to the Reader under the conviction that there is in the Life and Labours of the late George Washington Walker much to interest and instruct the young, as well as to animate the Christian disciple in every period of life. Believing that his character and example would be better brought out by his own records than by any other means, the Editors have done little more than make selections from his papers, which consist chiefly of letters, and a journal kept during his travels with James Backhouse in the Southern Hemisphere. In perusing the volume it will be well to keep in remembrance, that as Or. W. Walker was born in 1800, his age runs parallel with the year. It must also be observed that great changes have taken place both in the Australian Colonies and in South Africa since he travelled there. At that time Tasmania was usually called Van Diemens Land, and was a dependency of New South Wales, with a Lieutenant Governor.
