After the Excitement of delving into the UK newspapers online and now finding out that they are online through the NSW STATE LIBRARY. NOW I find that NLA has AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPERS ONLINE.

Now this is the life !!!!!!!! Imagine what we are going to find with this one .

HERE’S A HENRY KENDALL SAMPLE BELOW.

article1319536-4-001KENDALL VERSE 

BRISBANE COURIER MAIL. 1868

What mystery lies behind this article at a time when Henry’s twin Basil has been “exiled” to Queensland ? His mother Melinda has been declared bankrupt. He has newly married Charlotte . To whom is he referring ?

The Electronic Translation of this article called it HAIRY KENDALL which appeals to me very much. Particularly upon consideration of this article, again from the Brisbane Courier-Mail, in April 1869. very much in the style of his father Basil Methinks.
