  • Editor's note: Henry Lawson, born near Grenfell, New South Wales, in 1867, and author of many books of collected prose and verse, is generally recognised as one of the most characteristic Australian writers. In his work, therefore, with due allowances for individuality, we may expect to find typical Australian humour. This is generally the view taken by Mr Stephens in the following article, written more or less in Lawson's manner, and supposed to be spoken by two of Lawson's well-known bush characters.
