Is that a promise David ? :))
Here is something that may interest you.
The Proclamation respecting the toleration of the Roman Catholic religion given
by Governor King went like this
"Whereas I have judged it expedient and admissible, in consequence of a
communication from His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies
and War Department, to grant unto the Reverend Mr, Dixon a conditional
emancipation to enable him to exercise his clerical functions as a Roman
Catholic priest, which he has qualified himself for by the regular and exemplary
conduct he has manifested since his residence in this colony, and his having
taken the oath of allegiance, abjuration, and declaration prescribed by law.
Which permission shall remain in full force and effect as long as he, the said
Rev. Mr. Dixon (and no other priest), shall strictly adhere, to the rules and
regulations which he has this day bound himself by oath to observe, as well as
all other regulations which may hereafter be made thereon by His Majesty's
Government of this territory for the time being; and in case of any deviation
there from by the said Reverend Mr. Dixon, or any of his congregation, it will
remain with the Governor of this territory to suspend such religious assembles,
and to deal with the offenders according to Law"

BlankHi Lesley, and other PJ Listers,
Whoa back, I promise I'll be good from now on.
Did Lachlan Macquarie do something to ensure that there was only the one
religious institution, or was he only acting on behalf of the British Govt?
