Homes of the Rich and Poor. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 22 December 1899
lonies of t|e Rich ai)d Poor. V A son!, forth OD an unknown track, Breaking far from each earthly tie O'er space oblivious of care and pain, Where haunts of busy mankind lie. Onward by fortune-favoured home«, Where sport the golden Bunny rays, And wealth, luxurious, aye abounds Pleasures serene, in halcyon days. Bright butterflies, in fairy chase, Flit 'mid the roseate perfumed bowers ; Birds and bees in an endless song Chant ever thro' the summer hours. On thither-by thc narrow ways. Sunshine forgotten in the gloom. Grey clouds and sullen cypress trees Grim shadows in the darke est loom. Far, where sweet birds forget to sing, So cold, the crowded alleys dim, Where comfort never a visit pays, And joys ne'er guard nor enter in. The scent of sweet flowers lingers not, The sunny rays less golden gleam, A throned monarch-Poverty Holds sway ; and terror reigns supreme. In bitterness bis subjects dwell, Youth and the aged in blind despair Cast on the seas of toil and pain Crusts of hunger...

Death of Mr. Sydney Burdekin. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 22 December 1899
Death of Mr. Sydney Burdekin. We have to record the death of Mr. Sydney Burdekin, which took place on Sunday at Rooty-hill For some months he had been ail- ing, and in the hands of Dr. M'Kay; and, indeed, his condition was such that the news of his demise came scarcely as a surprise to his many friends. He was in tis sixtieth year, and the immediate cause of death was drop«y. He leaves a widow and a family ot three daugh- ters and two sous. Mr. Burdekin was a conspicuous figure in the life ot' ¡Sydney. For one thing, he gave liberally out of his abundance, and many of our charities profited substantially by his generosity. One of the insti- tutions to which he gave largely was the ¡Sydney Hot-pitnl, and fora number of years he was upon the board of management. His sym- pathies were broad. He was a nrm patron of the fine ai ts. and it was no doubt for this reason that ne was appointed chief commis- sioner for New South Wales at the Melbourne Exhibition, in which capacity he acquitted...
