    The Mission!

    Hi Wombat, Not sure it's a good idea to pay him a friendly visit, wouldn't want it to get ugly & create even more problems on top of what you already have.

    Seventeen Seventy?

    Brains, Speaking to a mortgage broker (in Melb) who had a customer & wanted to buy property in 1770 for some sort of development. This broker also showed me a newspaper article (think it was Fin Review) & it showed all the movers & shakers who have purchased land in 1770. The list was resonably...
