An Inoffensive Man

The following description of Joe was made after the raid at Jerilderie.

“Byrne stands nearly six feet high, long features, fair complexion and an effeminate cast of countenance, and of a nervous disposition; his manner is quiet and he appears to a casual observer an inoffensive man.”

From the Bendigo Advertiser, 19 February 1879.
