AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Visiting an outback station, the Padre is confused by the excited claims of the children who rushed to greet him that there was a new baby in the family, as their mother had had a new baby only a few months earlier. Upon reaching the house, the woman reveals that there was indeed another new baby in their home, but sadly it was the child of a neighbour who had died shortly after giving birth. As the infant's father is experiencing great difficulty caring for his young family, the Padre convinces him to sell his station and move to the city where the children's aunt can help raise his family.
