They have been compiled from my census, employmentreturns and my own personal knowledge. A handwritten notes follows This is a census of aborigines liable to return to Borroloola and has nothing to do with Maintenance of aborigines on Alexandria Station. Census for 1. 5.1958 Alexandria Station NB 1 In the absence of Mr Young who is on recreation leave I carried out the inspection of books and the taking of the census with the assistance of Miss Young bookkeeper and Mr McQueen Headstockman. Neither of these persons are fully conversant with the number and names of wards on the station and the added fact that many wards wer absent on duty on out-stations and other distant points on the property made the compiling of a complete and accurate census extremely difficult. Mr McQueen was anxious to leave for Mt Isa and could not afford to spend time assisting me in this respect. The following census was compiled to the best of my ability. I feel that to establish a census beyond doubt the inspection should be carried out in conjunction with Soudan and Gallipoli outstations. Signed Patrol Officer P J Lennard.
