    We have discussed Matthew Flinders on this list in the past, and I seem to remember some interest expressed in his story.  A couple of second-hand books are on offer: 

    1. My Love Must Wait. Ernestine Hill. Second-hand, 1946 hard cover with dust jacket. Book is in fair to good condition, dust jacket is quite tatty. The story of Matthew Flinders and Ann Chappelle. As a newlywed, Matthew Flinders set sail for Australia and didn't return home again for almost ten years. The story of Flinders circumnavigation of Australia and his detention by the French on his way home. One copy only $25.00 including post. 
    1. Letters To Ann. Catharine Retter & Shirley Sinclair. Ann Chappelle was sweet-natured and clever and having lost her seagoing father at a young age, wanted no attachment with a naval man. He was Matthew Flinders, ambitious and making his mark in the Pacific. During almost ten years of separation, infrequent letters sustained their relationship. This book is an interweaving of letters and diary entries and gives an insight into one of history's most remarkable couples. One copy only $27.00 including post.
    The Aussie dollar has declined most sadly recently; I gather its all to do with market turmoil, and presently only 60-odd American cents is needed to buy one.  So the books are quite modestly priced.  More info at:
