Appendix 4: Comparative Table of Instalments of 'The Silent Sea' in the Adelaide Observer and the Melbourne Age

This Appendix documents the novel's serialisation in the Observer (Adl and the Age (Mlb). Serialisation in the Evening Journal followed the same pattern as in the Observer. Book and chapter divisions were indicated in Adl (recorded here as "I.i"etc.), but only chapter divisions in Mlb ("i" etc.). Where chapter divisions do not coincide with serial divisions the first or last two words of the instalment are recorded (e.g. [ ... possible happiness]). The newspaper page numbers of each instalment are followed by the relevant page and line numbers in this edition.
