— Appears in: Stolen Generations' Testimonies 2007;

'...And when he got there he said ‘Right you, you and you’ which was myself and two sisters, ‘you’re coming.’ Because possibly we were lighter skinned than the others. He said ‘Righto you, you and you.’ And away we went. Went to the Bruthen courthouse and the fellow that was there said ‘Who are you?’ We said ‘We’re the Harrisons.’ He looked at his piece of paper and he said ‘No, I don’t think that’s a name here. But anyway it doesn’t matter.’ Put his pen through the other name and just wrote Harrisons over it and said ‘Righto, you lot are gone.’...' (Transcribed from the Stolen Generations' Testimonies website)
