“Conversion of the Aborigines"

Camden. “Conversion of the Aborigines". A few days ago an aboriginal named Major was buried at Camden. Deceased,who was only twenty-nine years of age, had learned to read and write, and worked like a white man. He did not only have a very good character, but a few months before his death was formally received into the Catholic Church, became a regular communicant, and was really remarkable for his piety. It is stated that nearly all the remaining members of the Burragorang are now Catholics.” (Trove: The Argus (Melbourne, V IC: 1848-1957).
