Source: SMH 6 July 1880, p.5 col.6, includes booth results. Same results in Kiama Independen, with report of nominations in 2 July issue. Frustratingly, the Independent never uses Coulter's first names, nor does Coulter in his advertising, though he does give his address at 131 Sussex Street Sydney.
