Description:

Scarce parliamentary paper by the New South Wales Solicitor General regarding the disputed boundary between Victoria and New South Wales, covering the Riverina area.

The dispute originated from Victoria’s interpretation of a 1851 letter written by Thomas Mitchell, the Surveyor General of the Colony at the time in which he pointed out that the boundary which had been tentatively assumed as diving Port Phillip District from New South Wales was incorrect.

Bevan conclusion in this reports refutes Victoria’s claim, stating; ‘the claim originally put forward by that State to the ownership of the Riverina, was without any foundation whatever, and remains unaffected by the views of Sir Tomas Mitchell contained in his letter of 3rd January, 1851.
