Title: Report of constable McIntyre of the murders committed at Stringy Bark Creek
Creator: Public Record Office Victoria
Provenance: VPRS 4966 P0 Unit 1 Item 3
Transcript: horse which he had abandoned and made my escape upon it I was fired at repeatedly and I believe the horse must have been wounded as he knocked up after two or three miles. I concealed myself in a Wombat hole until it became dark when I travelled all night and until 4 pm today when I reached Mansfield. I approached Mr. Tolmies Station about 12 noon but I was under the impression two of the horses hobbled near that homestead were police horses which had been used by us, and I came to the conclusion that the station was stuck up by these desperadoes and did not approach, as I was disarmed and completely prostrated from travelling. As there has been no report of this matter I would not be positive of it. Two of the murderers were Edward Kelly and Daniel Kelly the two were young men about the same age of each respectively T. McIntyre Const 2384 Sub Inspector Pewtress Mansfield
