Abstract: The following poem and notes on the Old Jail at Dubbo were alike selected by L.J. Anderson, Honorary Secretary of the Gilgandra Museum and Historical Society. He is also responsible for arranging for the photograph of the Mawbey grave to be taken. There has been considerable interest in the Breelong murders and their even more tragic sequel, particularly since the more recent treatments of the theme by the late Frank Clune and by the novelist, Thomas Keneally, The matter which was also made a focus in 'The North West Magazine' for 7th January, 1974, has had numerous semi-popular treatments since 1945. The whole cluster of documents and references are published together, pending an exhaustive study of a theme which has haunted both press and imaginative writers as one of the most human and tragic instances of aboriginal and white settler confrontation.
