Stop Thief! Willie Wallaby , 1860 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Illawarra Mercury , 10 April vol. 5 no. 64 1860; (p. 2)
The critique concludes: 'Let [the poet] in future resist the temptation to imitate Byron and the other giants of their art, and by always exercising due care not "to o'erstep the modesty of nature" he may succeed in opening up a "claim" in the "Shaolhaven gullies," to which not even the most captious will refuse to admit the genuineness of his right'.
