September 1792. p.235. Very few of the Convicts at Norfolk Island
whose terms of transportation had expired, were found desirous
of becoming permanent settlers; the sole object of the major
part appearing to be, that of taking ground for the purpose
of raising by the sale of the produce a sum sufficient
to enable them to pay for their passages to England. The
settler to benefit this colony, the bona fide settler, who should
be a man of some property, must come from England. He
is not to be looked for among discharged soldiers, shipwrecked
seamen, or quondam convicts.

perhaps, be longer felt; by these are meant men of property,
with whom the gentlemen of the colony would associate, and
who should be thoroughly experienced in the business of agriculture.
Should such men ever arrive, the administration of justice
might assume a less military appearance, and the trial
by jury, ever dear and most congenial to Englishmen, be
seen in New South Wales" Such is the dilemma: — the prosperity of of the settlement depends upon a limited government: — but the very existence of it depends upon an absolute one of this the founders of it were sensible: I am no less so.

No 4 p. 501 He has .... occasionally had the gratification of recording
the return of principle in some .... but it has oftener been his
task to shew the predilection for immorality, perseverance in
dissipation, and inveterate propensity to vice, which prevailed
in many others.
