Advice to a Young Lady in the Colonies

The young couple sailed for New South Wales where they were to establish their home, The Vineyard at Parramatta. One of Maria's most treasured possessions was a letter written by a friend of the family, referred to only as 'Mrs E.' She advised the young bride on how to create and run her colonial household".
