Another Aboriginal boy from Newcastle is placed at the Native Institution. His name is Jemmy (James as in James Wallis?). He is just three years of age. He makes friends with little Henry who is two years of age and from Kissing Point besides the Parramatta river. In the same year, three more children are admitted to the Institute: Nanny, Sukey and Maria (Byrnes?) alias Margaret. At this time, Aboriginal people are gathering near the marketplace of Parramatta. Sometimes 300 or more come together to receive food and grog at the festival. Their bodies are painted red and white and festooned with white feathers.
