Darwin finds the Australians to be in general pleasant people except for the forced labor of the convicted criminals. The country grows rapidly. Darwin sees the disadvantages in rapid growth, consisting mostly of land value inflation and a feeling of anonymity. The influence of the rough convicts makes Darwin concerned for the wellbeing of the children. He nevertheless has high hopes for Australia.
