(full text transcription)


The report of the Royal Commission appointed by Victorian Government to inquire into the Kelly outbreak and its result states clearly and beyond doubt that both Dan Kelly and Hart perished. And this commission it must be remembered, examined all the people who knew anything about the matter, including those who entered the hotel whilst it was burning and identified the three dead bodies there as those of Byrne, Dan, and Hart, who pulled the wounded man, Sherry, out of the burning building. The report states that, judging from the appearance of the bodies of Hart and Dan, they had taken off their armour and committed suicide. Their identity has never been called in question during all these years.
