|This document written by Inspector Lyttleton of Sandhurst on 16 October 1854 for the information of the Acting Chief Commissioner in Melbourne reports on the events of a meeting of local diggers. Although Lyttleton considers the meeting to be of little importance 'at present', it indicates that the Police in Melbourne were keen to be kept up-to-date on the movements and intentions of agitators on all Victorian goldfields: particularly if there was talk of armed resistance to the licence hunts, as the placards described in this report would suggest.|
