Others are written under the name of John Freeman from Melbourne and tell of Freeman's adjustment to life, and life in Melbourne in 1889. Another letter deals with the "land boom".

Biography
  • Edward Oxford was committed to criminal lunatic asylums for 27 years after twice shooting at Queen Victoria in St. James Park on 10 June, 1840. While at Broadmoor Asylum, Berkshire, Oxford occupied his time in self-education, and upon his release, 27 November, 1867, changed his name to John Freeman. It is thought that he spent the remainder of his life in Australia. Freeman published Lights and shadows of Melbourne life, in 1888.
