This book consists of a speech written by Hugh M. Hull and read in England in 1859 regarding the prosperity and nature of the Tasmania, the aim of which was to encourage working and middle class English citizens to move to the Australian colony.
Hull at the time was 'formally Police Magistrate and Chairman of Quarter Sessions for the county of Cumberland, and now Coroner and clerk Assistant of the House of Assembly of Tasmania' and had been living in Tasmania for about forty years.
His speech includes a large amount of statistics and information on everything a prospective emigrant could want to know, ranging from gold, cattle, whaling, gardening, land, population, mail, climate, the laws, government, societies, churches and schools.
This will be of interest to anyone interested in Tasmania at this time as well as those interested in immigration to Australia.
