There's very little I can say about this shocking 1907 telegram which was sent by a Charles MORGAN from the Broome Station to Henry PRINCEP, who at the time was, Chief Protector of Aborigines for Western Australia, and based in Perth.
I do not know who Charles MORGAN was. I suppose I could find out, but then I don't really want to know.
Henry PRINCEP, recieved many such requests. What his replies were, I don't know. But he did file them away, perhaps for us to reflect and be ashamed.
For those who have trouble reading the telegram, it reads:-
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA
