The following list of Native Words was found among papers originally in the possession of Rev. William Bedford, D.D., who succeeded Rev. Robert Knopwood as Principal Chaplain of Van Diemen's Land in 1823. Mr. Bedford took a deep interest in the "Native Question," and was an active member of the Aboriginal Committee, an advisory body appointed by Colonel Arthur to assist the Executive in effectually dealing with the very difficult Native problems of the time. The list and notes have been copied by myself, and are an exact reproduction of the original in spelling and composition. I have not been able, yet, to discover who the writer "H.W.M." was.
