Senator ABBOTT (New South Wales) . - May I, for personal reasons, support the motion? I had the privilege of being closely associated with the late Sir Albert Gould on the council of one of the leading educational institutions in New South Wales, and I also knew him personally during his long career as a member of the Parliament of that State. Moreover, he was a close personal friend of my father, and I saw much of him on that account. He came from my own native district, the Upper Hunter, and as a young man, practising law at Singleton, established at a very early age a reputation for that uprightness and strength of character - I might say beauty of character - which characterized his long and honorable career.
