The Mercury, Hobart, Tasmania, Wednesday 23rd March 1864, page 3.

“A new stained glass window has just been completed in Richmond church. It is of great beauty, and reflects very much credit upon the makers, M. and A. O’Connor, of Oxford-street, London. The designs are carried out in a most faithful manner, and the figures are naturally and gracefully drawn. The subjects are intended to illustrate three verses of “The Te Deum.” First, “The glorious company of the Apostles praise Thee.” Second, “The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise Thee.” Third, “The noble army of Martyrs praise Thee.” The tracery is filled in with appropriate symbols and emblems. The funds for the window have been raised chiefly by the exertions of young persons in collection small subscriptions.
