Summary
McFarlane writes of the Aboriginal people of the Clarence Valley region in some detail from page 12 through to page 26. He decries the treatment of Aboriginal people in general and in particular over their dispossession and subjugation. He talks of the Myall Creek Massacre noting "the practice of killing the blacks had evidently become so common that the convicted men stated that they didn't think there was any harm in it.". In his notes on Aboriginal peoples, McFarlane discusses: food, warfare, corroboree, beliefs, treatment by whites, the Aborigines Board, crime and punishment, fishing methods, bees, swimming, liquor, attitudes to work, dress, religion, role of women, tribal life, canoes and weapons
