I entered the Bank of New South Wales branch in Jerilderie and was greeted by the KellyGang. They ordered me over counter to join Mr Living the accountant. I was then taken to the Royal hotel by the KellyGang and made a prisoner. We were 'looked after' by Dan Kelly and Steve Hart. It was still a rather traumatic time but I kept good notes of what was happening. See (Argus12/2/79) (SMH12/2/1879) (OMA13/2/1879)
I later became the editor of the Jerilderie Herald in 1886 and I was involved in many local interests
