Courtenay Stainer, mentioned in a letter written by Maisie Smith on 2nd March 1899 and published in the book "Maisie". P92 "What a nice note from Courteney Stainer.“


Written by Joan Kyffin Willington
Published by Wakefield Press

In 1898, Maisie Smith is twenty and on board ship from London to her South Australian birthplace to recover from a 'disastrous engagement'. By the time she arrives she has won and broken new hearts and is fresh for adventure. Her enthusiasm for the social life in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and the bush is matched only by her delight in describing it in her letters home. ... Maisie's letters to her mother, and later to Evan, reflect the years as Australia moves to federation, Victoria gives way to Edward, cracks appear in the certitudes of the Empire and questions are asked about women's rightful place in the sun.
