The deceased lady remembered a drought on the Hawksbury River when the settlers pulled the wheat up by the roots and there was just room for the hand between the ear and the ground. They had to dig the earth, and get the roots of grass to feed the harness bullocks on to keep them alive. The maize that year only grew 18" hig, and had no cobs on it. The goats were the only thing that get their own living that year.
