Thank you so much for the most interesting talk last Saturday about ‘Law and Order in the Colony 1788-1800’. You painted a fascinating picture of the ways things were at the time and how people acted in the new environment.Also many people gained from your knowledge of research sites and where to go for information. We really appreciated you coming into Sydney and spending your Saturday afternoon with us. Beverley Brooks President COSHA
