  • "The first appearance in print of an Australian Aboriginal person. Bennelong's letter to Mr Phillips, Steward to Lord Sydney, was dictated by him on 29 August 1796. It is here printed in the original English and in German translation. It is 'the earliest piece of writing produced by an Aboriginal author (Penny van Toorn: Writing never arrives naked, 2006, p. 53) ... A detailed and very interesting footnote explains that the anthropologist Blumenbach - who at the time was in regular correspondence with Banks - had received a copy of the letter and sent it on to Zach, the editor of this journal ... Bennelong was one of the first Australian Aboriginal people to make contact with British settlers at Sydney Cove. He learned some English and went to Britain when Governor Hunter returned there in 1792. In 1795 he came back to Australia, 'in poor health, unable to rebuild relations with his people and out of favour in the colony (Heiss/Minter, p. 9) -- Bookseller's catalogue
