A Returned Voyager. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 24 February 1912
A Returned Voyager. Mr "Jack" Murphy, the squire of Langwarrin, has (says the Journal) returned to Dandenoug after a visit ts Ireland, and expre'ses himself ao heartily p'eased to tread Australian soil once again. Mfr Murphy had an' enjoyable trip to the land of his birth, rilatives and old friends, but withal pins his faith to the country of his adoption. The climate at the Anti podes seems to maintain its consistency of awfulnese, and it is well that Sunny Australia has undeniab'e attractions in this respect. A chat with Mr Murphy will prove interesting; his remarks are racy of the soil and bear out the general experiences of those who pay a visit to the old country after years of sojourning here. In Ireland the system of land purchase from the big landlords, and the consequent nmelioration of the small tenant through his gaining an occupancy of form land on better terms-we might say most liberal terms-has made a marked difference in the welfare of the people. AMr Murphy has had s...
