THE LATE MR ANDREW
TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
Sir,—In your obituary of the late Mr. Andrew Chirnside, which appears in The Argus of to-day, it is stated that his "brother, the late Mr. Thomas Chirnside, came to Port Phillip in 1839, and took up an extensive tract of country on the western shore of Port Phillip, between Melbourne and Geelong, the greater part of which has since been known as the Werribee-park Estate."
This is a mistake. The land which has for years been known as the Werribee-park Estate was first occupied by two brothers of the name of Wedge.
In October or November, 1839, I crossed the Werribee in company with the late Mr. Joseph Sutherland. The Wedges were then washing sheep in the river, and these gentle- men occupied the Werribee run for some time afterwards.—Yours, &c.,
