Notes

  • Author's note: 'After Wolfe'.
  • A poem on John Dunmore Lang, who, in April 1851, was imprisoned for four months on two charges of malicious libel. The charges related to two articles which Lang had published in the newspaper the Press, in which he attacked members of the New South Wales Legislative Council who had voted to censure him. In the articles Lang was deemed to have defamed New South Wales M.L.C. Thomas Icely.
