Memo by John J. Shillinglaw describing the plinth erected by subscription to the memory of John Batman, which replaced his unremarked grave. The memo is written on a blank subscription list paper and dated 14 Dec 1881.
Printed subscription list with memo handwritten in black ink. Letterhead in black reads "Batman Memorial Fund" in a bold gothic font; underneath is a sketch by Melbourne Police Magistrate Joseph Anderson Panton. The sketch shows a hunched old man supported by a cane and a boy, looking at a simple black cross in a graveyard, signifying the resting place of John Batman. Signed and dated by John J. Shillinglaw
