THE BAY OF BISCAY. To the Editor of the South Bourke Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 20 June 1862
THE BAY OF BISCAY. To the Editor of the South Bourke Standard, SIR,--I wish through your valuable columns to call the attention of the Boroondara Road Board to the almost impassable state of that portion of the Main Gipps Land road, called the Bay of Biscay. I would ask them whether we are to pilot ourselves through this ocean of mud another winter ? Are we poor unfortunate woodcarters to drag on our &nbsp; existence by dragging through this Slough of Des- pond- this chaos of filth and uncleanness ? I hope not. I am not, Mr. Editor, a man of extraordinary faith; but I have faith enough to believe that our Road Board will not be so faithless as to neglect us altogether; nor am I one of those men who are always grumbling and growling about where the money should be expended and where it should not. I rather leave that to the men whom we have en- trusted with the control of our affairs. And I do believe that if some of the members of the Board &nbsp; were to come and se...
