(full text transcription)

(see also introduction to day 43)

John Sherritt giving evidence

15195 When did you return from there?— I stopped there awhile working, and came back.

15196 How long have you been back?— I was discharged on the 19th October 1880 . I was two or three months there, and I have been in Victoria since

15197 Did you come back to Victoria in consequence of any information that you obtained that the Commission was appointed to enquire into the Kelly outrages?— No; it was too hot in South Australia, and I got a fall from my horse.

15198 Have you been in communication with any of the officers of police since the time you were discharged from the police force?— No.

15199 Have you received letters from any officers of the police since that time?— No.

15200 Have you had any personal interview with any officer you knew in the North-Eastern District before you came here to give evidence?— No.

15201 Have you had any conversation with Ward during the last week?— No.

15202 With Messrs. Nicolson, Sadleir, or Hare?— No, and no other officer at all.

15206 Did you see me?— No.

Mr. Hare — I refused to see-him.

15207 By the Commission— Have you been to Mr. Hare’s house at any time since you were discharged?— I was a few days after. I did not see Mr. Hare then.

15208 What was your object in going there?— I wanted to explain the way that I was treated. I did not know what to do.

15209 You felt you had been unfairly dealt with?— Yes, that is what it was.

15210 And you wanted to explain it was through no fault of yours you were dismissed?— Yes, that is what I wanted to tell Mr. Hare; but I did not see him.

15211 By Mr. Hare— You said you had been at Sunbury. Had I anything to do at all with your going to Sunbury?— No, nothing whatever.

The witness withdrew.
