AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Travelling on the lonely outback tracks between stations, the Padre shares a campfire for the night with a disconsolate would-be miner who had unsuccessfully sought for a reputed copper lode. At the Padre's urging, the man has one last try. Fifteen months later they encounter each other again in a different location, where the man informs the Padre that his confidence had proved well-founded and rewards him with a monetary gift.
