'Dedicated to Governor Gipps, in support of his opposition to the squatters.' (Webby)

Notes

  • Dedication: Dedicated to His Excellency Sir George Gipps, in testimony of the writer's belief in his having endeavoured throughout his administration, by wise and decided measures, to prevent (politically and morally) those evil influences which have tended in the greatest degree to produce that state of things which is deplored in the poem.
