Bob Bolton Folklore: Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney (11) RE: Folklore: Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney 09 Jul 14


G'day even yet again Fergie,

I only got in a quick look at the several thousand books lining several walls at home ... before heading off to the Bush Music Club Committee meeting last night.

What I need to find is The "Vocabulary of the Flash Language" (originally 2 volumes, 1819) ... written by 'transported' pickpocket James Hardy Vaux - as a guide for the local magisrates, when dealing with subsequent offences by serving or time-expired convicts ( ~ ... and hoping not to be the subject of such investigations!).

However, I suspect that the example of a vernacular name you started with might have been too obvious ... at that time ... to warrant an entry!

Regards.

BobB
