He came to New South Wales in 1853 and practised as a lawyer in Sydney and then at Grafton, on the Clarence River, where on April 26 1868, his body was found floating in the river. An open verdict was pronounced by the coroner. While in Sydney, Michael employed the poet Henry Kendall, giving him friendship and encouragement. Item #033349
