Notes

  • The statue of Burke referred to in this poem was erected in Collins Street, Melbourne and unveiled in April 1865; in 1886 it was moved to Spring Street. Later editions of the poem, including the fourth edition of 1888, have the following note: 'The extension of the tramways has necessitated the removal of this statue to Spring-street' .
