Mannings Station.  Govett took up 500 square miles of that country in connection with another young man of the name of Parsons, and in order to enable them to get their licenses they rent stock from Harding & Manning at a cost of £1000 for six months, and bind themselves to hand over their licenses to Harding & Manning should they be unable to pay the £1000.  Govett & Parsons
