AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Hellspond was working on a station called Bungle Downs. One very hot day a stranger arrived and told the boss that he would make sausages for them. So the men killed wild hogs, two bullocks and some poddy calves and Old Pedro made a huge number of sausages. The men did their best but they could not eat all the sausages. Finally Hellspond thought of giving them to the local Aborigines who came and ate them all.
