Cover: The illustration on the front cover is a section of a watercolour, First Settlement at Port Albert [H1608, La Trobe Picture Collection], by Robert Russell (1808–1900), who was the first surveyor of Port Phillip, arriving in 1836. The painting is a product of a surveying expedition to Port Albert and Wilson's Promontory in 1843. It represents the locality in which the ‘White Woman of Gippsland’ (of whom Julie Carr writes in this issue) was supposed to have been shipwrecked and captured by Aborigines. A newspaper report (‘Supposed outrage by the Blacks’ Port Philip Patriot, 18 January 1841) of the ‘sighting’ of the White Woman is reproduced on the back cover.
