In memory of Hamilton Hume
Illustrated Sydney News
21 February 1880
The somewhat unsightly piece of masonry which covered the remains of the late Hamilton Hume the Australian explorer, in St. Clement's cemetery, Yass, has been removed by order of Mrs. Hume, and a handsome marble slab, about six feet high, encircled by a neat stone coping and ornamental iron railing, substituted.
The marble slab bears the following inscription:-
"In memory of Hamilton Hume, an Australian explorer. Died 19th April, 1873; aged, 76 years."
The work was executed by Mr. R. Beverly, of Yass, and does him infinite credit.
