The journal of Annie Dawbin opens in September 1834 when its author, then a 17-year-old bride, is voyaging to Australia with her new husband, Lieutenant Andrew Baxter. Over the course of her life - during which she had two marriages; worked on the land; voyaged to and from Australia several times; and raised her brother's children after the death of his wife - Dawbin filled no less than 32 journals.

Written by a 'Rustic sister’ (identified as Baxter by Lucy Frost), drafts of carefully composed, descriptive monthly letters dated January-May 1840, survive in a sketchbook (NLA). This also contains her only known drawings: pencil sketches of landscapes and houses, several of views of the property in the Macleay River district of New South Wales where the Baxters settled in August 1839. Baxter’s regiment had been transferred to Sydney in September 1838, then to Port Macquarie, and after about two months at the latter he sold his commission to take up land near Kempsey. The prospect of pioneer rural life did not please Annie who ...
