Sebastopol Cavalcade 7/11/1878 In November 1878 Donald Cameron MLA (1877-1880) Berry, the Premier, that there should be an enquiry into the police. Berry replied to that he would call one if there was evidence of a want of proper organisation amongst the police. That statement probably led to the KellyGang to write the Cameron Letter .

The Cameron Letter is one of the great letters with the Jerilderie Letter where the KellyGang set out their call for justice
