I am indebted to Messrs. John Fairfax and Sons for permission to reprint " The Ghosts of Hunter Street " and " A Ramble round Old Sydney," which appeared, in part, in the Sydney Morning Herald and the Sydney Mail respectively.

To the Editor of the Sydney Mail and to Dr. G. H- Abbott, Mr. Smith is indebted for the loan of the original drawings of several of the illustrations.

Our united thanks are offered to the officers of the .Mitchell Library for their assistance.
