 +===== An Old Man Dreams [song]. =====
 +
 +The old sailor dreams of a little island\\
 +floating like an apple on the wide green sea.\\
 +An apple you could hold in your hand.\\
 +Turn this way and then that,\\
 +Place here a tree, and there a nigger in a palm-leaf hat.\\
 +He sailed all his life\\
 +Till his blood ran salt as the sea,\\
 +His ship was his sweetheart and his wife,\\
 +and he passed many an island\\
 +with no more than a glance\\
 +at the bright white sand of the curved sea-shore.\\
 +But now that the sailor is old\\
 +He would like a little island\\
 +like an apple like an apple like an apple,\\
 +Just to look at and to hold.

 +===== Fifty-Two Years A Bushwalker. =====
 +
 +(This is written by Mr. Seabrook. of North West Arm, Sutherland, rich in years but young in heart, and a great admirer of Bushwalkers.)
 +
 +Yes, I have been bushwalking for over half a century. My trips ranged from Cape York Peninsula in North Queensland to Victoria in the South. I am about to retire to my Bushwalkers'​ Paradise at Port Hacking. Many years ago I secured 23 acres of land in that area at North West Arm. I picked the site from the map; then I had to find it. There was not even a bush track; I had to crawl through prickly bushes to get to it; now there is a bus route through it. I have sold some and have twelve acres left. My front boundary is the water front; my back boundary is National Park, so I cannot be built out at either end. I have a natural rock pool of tidal water 495 feet long and about a chain wide, shark proof. All round Port Hacking merciless land-owners have cut down all native trees and shrubs and have nothing left but sand and hungry grey rock. I did not cut down my trees. On one area of 8 acres I did not even cut the undergrowth for 15 years, nor allow any bushfires across it. As a result it has leaf mould a foot deep. For Bushwalking one can walk straight into National Park, or row up the river into the interior of the Park, or row to any part of its long water-front which comprises the whole northern shores of Port Hacking.
