Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'Received a letter from Emma and some papers from Joe. In Emma's letter there was an Extraordinary published by one of the Melbourne papers which contained the news of the Arrival of the Red Jacket. It was only published a short time before the Mail closed, so I thought the Papers here would not have it. They had however but yet I gave it to Nixon the Editor of The Constitution as a pledge silent but doubtless intended that I should not spoil the Sale of the Extraordinary which he intended to publish by showing it to any more people. The Conductors of the other Paper heard of my having news and came eagerly to see what I had got & were very crestfallen when I told them what had become of my "Paper".'
