"DESTITUTE CHILDRENThomas Harris brought before the Court, Louisa Youlten, aged nine months; Caroline Youlten, aged two years; Josiah Youlten, aged five years; and Samuel Youlten, aged seven years. He said he was their uncle, and the only relative they had in the colony; their father was killed by the capsizing of a spring cart on the way to Raywood six weeks ago, and left a wife and nine children; the mother died last week, after three days illness. He was very sorry he was under the necessity of applying to the Bench to send them to the industrial schools in Melbourne; he had a wife and two children at home, but he was willing to take Fanny (aged eight years) and Mary (aged thirteen years) under his care, and do his utmost for them. The three boys were grown up and could do for themselves, one of them was in the employ of the Murray Fishing Company.
The Bench ordered them all to be sent to the Industrial Schools in Melbourne, each for seven years, and to be taken to Melbourne under the care of Mrs Hardegan, who at present has the care of the infant." 1
