Evidence:

'Marcus Clarke commenced in this day's Weekly Times a series of articles under the title of "The Wicked World" or Melbourne [?] & Melbourne Life. The Article to-day described Camomile or Collins Street. Marcus has set himself a difficult task, he will have either to be very personal & so [?] enemies or be dull & considered commonplace. He might if he were mean enough perhaps make his subject the vehicle for advertisers. If his work is read many would pay to have their establishments even appear wicked in it.'
