WILLIAM DUTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 30 April 1914

WILLIAM DUTTON. At a time like this, when public at- tention is being drawn to the days of the early settlement of Portland, it is only right that some mention should be made of the late William Dutton, who was in some respects the forerun- ner of the Hentys. He did not, it is true, come with flocks and herds, but he landed here several years before the Hentys, and it was possibly through his visits that early colonists in Van Dieman's Land acquired a knowledge of the place. William Dutton also has a claim upon our kindly remembrance by the fact he lived out his days here and was lulled to sleep by the murmur of the sea. This idea has found poetical expression in some vigorous verses in Mr. Grant Hervey's "Australians Yet,"   of which we give below the closing stanzas. The poem is headed "Dutton's Grave," and is accompanied by the fol- lowing explanatory note:— "A whaling station was established at Portland, Victoria, by Captain William Dutton in 1828, years before eith...
