Curr and the Tide of History for the boys to become fluent in French and after nine months of study they boarded with a family in the village of Quincey for several more months. Their hosts were Monsieur and Madame Delhay, whose son Henri was of a similar age to Edward.

19 Curr’s poor ability to navigate through the bush was soon exposed when four of his six bullocks ‘absconded’. 21 The search for the bullocks was initially unsuccessful and was abandoned after two weeks. Nevertheless, matters at Wolfscrag improved slightly when Curr’s overseer suggested that the increasingly hungry sheep should be moved to a patch of well-grassed country further north, which Curr later found was part of a neighbour’s lease. Despite sinister behaviour from his overseer, who apparently knew moving the sheep north would amount to trespass, Curr and his men shifted the starving flock and set up a simple outstation.

33 Edward M. Curr and the Tide of History Curr armed each of his men with a carbine and six cartridges: ‘as much perhaps to give them confidence as from any likelihood of a collision with the Blacks’. Despite his best efforts, Curr recalled that he only narrowly avoided a mutiny by his shepherds. After four days of droving through the foreboding scrub, the four shepherds formally complained and asked to be paid out and released. Although Curr believed he could manage the immediate task of droving without his shepherds, he also knew that finding new staff would be difficult and that their absence would preclude shearing, building of huts and other important tasks.
