Notes

  • Author's note (the Empire): From 'The Australian Shepherd', an unpublished poem.'
  • Author's note (Bell's Life in Sydney): '[goburras] The aboriginal name for the "Laughing Jackass" . I use the more poetical appellation, not having the courage to follow the example of your clever contributor, "Damphool Junr." It will be seen that this "Fragment" is a juvenile effort.'
