The snippet above is what was read by Joe at Faithfull’s Creek, as recounted by Mrs Fitzgerald:
“A copy of The Australasian was lying on the table, and the news it contained concerning the gang was read by him with avidity. He denied the report that certain burned saddles which had been found in the bush were those which belonged to the horses stolen from the police.”
My name is Georgina, I’m a 25 year old journalism student who currently resides in the, not so small, island state of Tasmania.
When I am not studying, I love to cook, ride my horses and most of all, writing historical fiction.
My main passion in life is Australian Bushrangers, with Joe Byrne of the Kelly Gang being my most favoured ‘Outlaw.’
