Walker to Reverend Watson - Teaching

Walker to Reverend Watson about teaching at the Blacktown Native Institute: “Of the Government Institution I shall take a part. The girls will fall to my lot, the boys to Mr Cartwright’s. The government will give me twenty pounds per annum per child but only a probation for the children. If after one year every expectation of two or three men (public examiners) is not realised, then the child will be placed in the Orphan Schools.” A group of local respectable men attend the annual public examinations.
