Billy Lynch - memoirs

Billy Lynch tells someone writing down his memoirs, “I don’t know, but I suppose it is that the time for my people to be replaced by another has come, and so all the animals, and the fruits, and birds they depended on vanished. It is not the shooting. There is not enough of that to account for it. It is just that their time has come too.” Lynch was born in the Kanimbla Valley in about 1836. (Johnson, Sacred Waters, p. 19)
