The text of the following letters comes from original hand
written material held by the Mitchell Library in Sydney (A849 of Bulletin manuscripts copied as CY reel
1540), except for a small amount which is not available in the poet's hand. This
has been drawn from A G Stephen's Memoir in his book on Barcroft Boake (published 1895).
Editing has been minor and is restricted to punctuation.
Barcroft was rather frugal in its use.
The material is grouped as follows:
Adaminaby Letters (1887)
Droving Letters (1888-89)
Riverina Letters (1891)
