Canterbury Museum, 28th May, 1892. Sir, I find from an examination of the Museum accounts for 1890 and 1891 in the Registrars Office, that the Museum paid during those years about eighteen pounds (£18) to Mr Easter for photographs and negatives. None of these are now in the Museum. Mr W. S. Colclough informs me that Mr Forbes packed up and took away from the Museum a number of photographs and negatives, but he does not know if they these are the ones paid for by the Museum.
I have the honour to be, &c, (Signed) F. W. Hutton, Acting Curator.

Thank you for pointing out this interesting story, which sent me off to read those newspapers (and their contemporaries in Australia), and prompted me to write about it on my blog.
