Notes

  • Preface: ....I send forth these pages to tell their simple story of how, in spite of bitter poverty, much hardship, and utter want of education, Henry Parkes fought his way to everlasting fame.' Annie T. Parkes. Leichhardt, 11th July, 1896.(pp.7-8).
  • Dedication: To the memory of my dear Father and Mother, I dedicate this book.
  • Introduction: ...My father had three sisters - Sarah, Maria, and Eliza. These letters are chiefly addressed to the eldest, Sarah, to whom he was greatly attached,...The letters were given to me at Faulconbridge early in the eighties by my Aunt Maria, and it was her wish, and my father's also, that I should publish them after his death. (pp.9-11). Annie T. Parkes.
  • An Appendix (pp.145-153) contains 'Letter from Mr. J. G. Hornblower' and two poems, 'The Emigrant's Farewell to His Country' and 'My Native Land'. A Note by Annie T. Parkes (p.144) comments: The following letter was sent in answer to my repeated request to Mr. J. G. Hornblower to give me some account of my father's youthful years, Mr. Hornblower and his brother being his only friends and companions at that time. With regard to the poems 'The Emigrant's Farewell to his Country' was written just before my father left England in 1839. I do not know the date of the poem 'My Native Land', but it was written soon after his arrival in the colony. - A.T.P.
