Mahroot goes on many voyages

Mahroot goes on many voyages from about 1809. In 1813 he writes to Governor Macquarie, “Sir, my name is Merute an inhabitant and native of this country. I agreed verbally for plenty of money and clothes and can obtain nothing, is this an encouragement to us? (p. 152) - These voyages continue until 1822 after which he settles down in Kameygal country. (Vincent Smith p. 149)
