The Historical Records of Australia Series III, Volume 6, published in 1923, covers despatches and papers relating to the settlement of the states. Volume 6 looks in particular at Tasmania April to December 1827, West Australia March 1826 to January 1830 and Northern Territory August 1824 to December 1829.
