from Pastoral Review, 16 December 1918

The late Mr. Stewart Reid, owner of Eddington Station, near Camperdown, Victoria, died at the end of last month, aged 73 years. He was born at Dundee, Scotland, and came out in the ship Koh-i-noor in 1852. He was educated at the Geelong Grammar School, was married to Miss Jessie Craig, daughter of the late Mr. Angus Craig, and took over Eddington Station in 1867. In his death the district loses an estimable resident, and one who did much over a long life to advance the interest of his neighbours.

Mr. Reid was a great reader, history, ancient and modern, philosophy, science, social and political writings, and the abstruse theories of money and exchange were his favourite subjects; and in all of them he was himself a facile and trenchant writer, Under the pen name of "Frank Morley," he published novels dealing chiefly with Australian social life, and he also contributed sketches on various subjects to the Melbourne reviews.
