Notes

  • Authorship has been questioned. An anonymously published poem in the Geoffry Crabthorn literary column of The Register, 'A Voice from the Bush', or 'Under the Trees', was written in the style and manner of thought of Adam Lindsay Gordon. The poem won much acclaim and was believed to be by Gordon. It was included in Marcus Clarke's selection of works of Gordon, but others pointed out that it had been submitted to The Register a year after Gordon's death.

    Mowbray Morris (qv), who had been Aide-de-Campe to the Governor at the time of its publication, claimed authorship. See Poems of Adam Lindsay Gordon, ed. Frank Maldon Robb (1912), Appendix IV.

    The poem later attracted a response from Banjo Patterson in the form of a sequel, 'A Voice from the Town'.

  • A Century of Australian Song states author as 'Anonymous'
