Glenrowan Siege 28/6/1880
In April 1881 I reported to Sgt Steele about the activities of the KellyGang's sympathizers. I produced a report about the thieft of two pit saws from Acock's. I said- And I have also very little doubt but that the saws were stolen for the purpose mentioned in Sergeant Steele's telegram of yesterday, more especially as Constable Graham informs me that the Kelly friends and sympathizers have been more than usual about Greta for the last two days." The telegram alluded to is here, dated 25th April 1881- "Stolen last night from Acock's, Seven-mile Creek, two large pit saws, supposed taken to armour out of. Would be well to send trackers at once to Acock's, near Glenrowan. Will have tracks, if any, preserved".(RC9870)(RC16716)
