Georgiana wrote this letter to a family friend, Mrs Frances Birkett, after arriving in Western Australia and it’s full of personal information about her first year in the colony. For reasons we’ll probably never know, the letter was forwarded to Georgiana’s mother. Mrs Kennedy kept all her correspondence and her personal documents were stored safely after her death. For that reason, Georgiana’s letter was saved and is still readable today.
