    Shelton's Contracts: Though it is not widely recognised, the transportation of convicts to Australia from 1786 required the making of a contract between the British government and a shipowner, and/or his agents, when it was understood the captain's name would also be used on a contract. Bateson by 1959 had listed all the convict ships necessary to mention, but not all their owners. Some mysteries still remain regarding the names of ship managers making such contracts, which from 1786 till 1829 were made with Thomas Shelton "at the Old Bailey". (Shelton died in 1829.) That is, Shelton was the only official in London given the authority to make out such contracts. Many of the ship managers Shelton dealt with, especially after 1800, cannot be traced, sometimes due simply to lacks of corroborative genealogical or other historical information.
    Clark - John - The next such contracts for convict transportation after the death of Shelton in 1829 were made out by Shelton's nephew, John Clark. The Accounts of John Clark (Clerk of The Peace) relating to convict transportation, 13 July 1829 - Dec 1840, CLRO Shelf No. 209C. The dates covered by this volume are virtually identical with those of the 12 volumes of: List of Convicts on Board Ships ... To Australia, 13 July 1829 - Nov 27, 1840, CLRO Shelf No 209D. It seems likely that John Clark was responsible for both sets of records. -Ed

    George Soros, The Bubble of American Supremacy. Allen and Unwin, 2003.
    Precis from reviews and news articles: Soros, one of the world's richest finance operators, and a small 'd' democrat, considers the US' current doctrine of pre-emptive military action as pernicious. The gap in perceptions between the US and the rest of the world has never been so wide. The US is seen as abusing its dominant position, while its current dream of American supremacy is unattainable and contradicts basic/traditional American values. Now, the US has to re-examine its role in the world and adopt a more constructive vision, in the light of which, if G.W. Bush is not re-elected, his views can be written off as an American abberation, but if he is re-elected, Americans need to so some serious rethinking. The US government is now in the hands of extremists who see life in terms of a crude social Darwinianism where survival needs to be aided by the use of force.
    True, 11 September 2001 introduced a discontinuity into American life, but a military war on terrorism is not an appropriate response. Terrorists are better regarded as criminals to be hunted by police, not military personnel. (See Weekend Sydney Morning Herald 31 Jan-1 Feb 2004, where Soros deplores the Bush administration's "Orwellian truth machine" using doublespeak, etc. Soros cannot understand how so many US citizens, in a land of a pluralistic, free media, now believe that Saddam Hussein was directly connected with 9/11 The US electorate is now largely or partially misinformed. Soros has given US$5 billion to help foster in democracy in Asia but now sees a need to foster democracy in the US.
