Title: Series 5, 7 - "Dear little friends, I should like you to know...about the little black children who lived on the banks of the Murray..." ms. 8p.
Author: Bates, Daisy
Issue Date: 13-Mar-2015
Abstract: In the form of a letter to children, D.M.B. describes the lifestyle of Aboriginal children in the recent past and compares it with the present European settlements. She goes on to describe the Aborigines’ treatment of their women and the contrasting observations they must have made of the settlers’ wives, who worked in equal partnership with their men. Further she writes about the dying out of the once proud warriors once their land was taken and as white man’s law became prevalent.
