Excerpt from Early Tasmania: Papers Read Before the Royal Society of Tasmania During the Years 1888 to 1899 It is the privilege of the writer to have known the late and much lamented Mr. James Backhouse Walker, F. R. G. S., through all his life, and he has been asked to supply a short memorial preface to the following papers which were read before the Royal Society of Tasmania. Mr. Walker was born at Hobart in the year 1841. His father, Mr. George Washington Walker, was a well-known and much respected member of the Society of Friends, and transmitted his simple and altruistic ways to his children. In the early years of these Colonies he was deputed, with Mr. Backhouse, by the Society of Friends, to visit the Australian settlements, and to inquire into and report upon their social condition. They did so at much cost of time and labour, and their representations were not without effect on the Colonial Office in Downing-street, which, in the old times, was the most perfunctory of State Institutions, very ignorant, very indifferent, and very contemptuous of communities which they regarded as almost wholly made up of the scum of the Empire.
