To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Cornwall Chronicle — 13 August 1836

Co tbf SSfiitor. Sir,— The Observer has thought proper to state, in its last production, that an anonymous letter, in- serted in the CHRONICLE relative to the recent me- lancholy occupation at Port Philip, "has any thing but truth for its basis" — and it quotes a communi- cation of Mr..Wedge as its authority for so   stating. The writer of the Observer must be an idiot, or he would preserve himself from the just indignation of the public. Mr. Wedge did not even hint at any outrage of the whites at Port Philip—his statement referred in toto to an act of violence committed upon the natives at "Western   Port by a party of barkers and splitters stationed at that place. I stated that five murders had been perpetrated by the natives of Port Philip upon unof- fending individuals, and I shall not hesitate to particularize them, TJic. first murders were upon two men, in the employ oT Captain Swanston i they were in the bush, hunting for kangaroo, when each man was ...
