'Herbert's informal, pithy lettersdescribe the "upper middle class"social scene, together with theeconomic and political realities of anewly-created colony. Theirsubjects range from a description ofa Quensland election to a report ofhis camping and cruising holidays;from complaints of severe "social"seasons and other "abominations"to eating oysters or making ice;from caustic comments on some ofhis associates to an essay on why hedid not wish to marry; fromimpatience with the "eccentricities"of Governor Bowen to heartyadmiration for Lady Bowen. Aninformative and often appreciativeview of colonial life, this bookshould prove a valuable contributionto the history of the periodand delight those general readersfor whom colonial life of the midnineteenthcentury has its ownspecial fascination.
