I am well aware of the facts to which you allude; and so far as I am concerned I was never under the impression that Wentworth was entitled to the credit of having led the party over the Blue Mountains. He never claimed it himself.
I have read his MS. account of the journey, and also Lieut. Lawson’s, but I have not seen Blaxland’s. If you can spare me the printed copy you refer to I will take care of it.
