G'day Fergie,

Thanks for that link ... it's certainly not set up as a quick research tool ... they just want to sell you and me ... each ... a modern reprint of the full memoir!

I slugged down and through the "dictionary section" ... but he doesn't bother to cite or define any terms for prisons &c. I reckon he would not waste his printer's bill on anything the Beak was certain to know already!

I guess I'll find my own library copy of the Vaux Memoirs and 'Dictionary' ... for the judiciary' ... some time when I'm up a ladder checking the higher levels of one of some half dozen bookshelves for some other - equally obscure 'colonial era' work!
