Conditional Purchase register, 1875

This Conditional Purchase entry is interesting because of the notation of 'The Dawn' newspaper beside Louisa's name. Louisa left her husband in 1883 and came down to Sydney with the children. Louisa started publishing 'Dawn' in 1888 and her husband's death in December of that year enabled her to enlarge the publication with the proceeds of his will. From NRS 8109 [7/4690], CP75/240.
