THE BELGIAN FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 3 October 1916

THE BELGIAN FUND. The central executive of this fund is appealing for further help. The local Municipal Coun cil has been urged to assist the movement.

The town clerk informs us that his time is too fully occupied to en able him to take charge of the matter, and he would be glad to have the names of anyone who is prepared to organise and con trol circles here.

RELICS OF BYGONE DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 3 October 1916

RELICS OF BYGONE DAYS. In a recent issue we mentioned that a number of tip drays and skeletons of horses had been dredged up by the Araluen Red bank dredge, and that no one seemed to know to whom the claim from which they were un earthed belonged. Mr. R. Kennedy, J.P., of Reids dale, who possesses a marvellous memory for incidents in the ear ly history of this district, throws light on the question. In an* in terview with our reporter he says : 'By the description of the land from which these carts, &c, were taken, opposite the old Court house, on which was known as 'the old plain,' it marks the spot of a claim opened early in 1860 by four Yankees, just out from California, named John Me Cann, James Doyle, P. Boland, James Gallagher (better known as 'The Little Dock'), and by th.& late Mr. John Kennedy, of Reids dale (my father). This was the first party who ever prospected the plain. Mr. Kennedy sold out his interest before the first cut was bottomed to one, Charley...

He was a fine soldier and a man who did his work and carried his re sponsibility well. We can ill af ford to lose such men as he. Your son was not called upon to suffer any pain.

From present appearances, to re pair the dam will involve almost as much work as...
