PIONEERS OF AUSTRALIA!

To You “Who Gave Our Country Birth;”

to the memory of You

whose names, whose giant enterprise, whose deeds of

fortitude and daring

were never engraved on tablet or tombstone;

to You who strove through the silences of the Bush-lands

and made them ours;

to You who delved and toiled in loneliness through

the years that have faded away;

to You who have no place in the history of our Country

so far as it is yet written;

to You who have done MOST for this Land;

to You for whom few, in the march of settlement, in the turmoil

of busy city life, now appear to care;

and to you particularly,

GOOD OLD DAD,

This Book is most affectionately dedicated.

“STEELE RUDD.”
