My Thanks Are Also Due To Lieutenant Bell, R.N., Whose Researches Have Enabled Me To Publish The Charts Of The Queensland Coast.

These old charts cannot fail to interest students of Australian history.

It is possible that they do not include all that were sent home at first, nor are the Lady Nelson's logbooks complete; those however of Grant and Murray, Curtoys and Symons, give us the story of the work carried out by those energetic seamen. They are writings worthy of being more widely known, for they are records left by men who sailed uncharted seas along unknown coasts in days which will not come again - men who have helped to give to later generations a spacious continent with a limitless horizon.
