Thursday 4 August 1910, The Sydney Morning Herald

Mr. E. F. Hughes, Dunoon, Richmond River, writes:- Having just returned from a trip to Tyringham, I wish to inform intending selectors that there is some beautiful cedar, rosewood, and stinging nettle scrub land, also good grass country, available for selection at £1 per acre. There is abundance of water. I know a selector who has only been on his selection one year, and he has about 30 acres of rye-grass a foot high. The soil is red and black, as good as anything on either the Clarence or Richmond. There is a school only two miles away, also a cheese plant in the middle of the available land. There is also a hotel four miles away and a boarding house three miles. The corn and potato crop in this locality is very good this season, with no blight. The said land is near the Armidale, Grafton, Dorrigo road, only 18 miles from the latter town. There is a township surveyed on the roadside. The climate is absolutely the best In Now South Wales, with an abundant rainfall. Having seen the land myself, I am in the position to speak about it, and will be only too pleased to give any intending selector every information I can about it.
