Magoffin sets out his reasons for disputing Harry Pearce's argument that 'Waltzing Matilda' originated from Bob McPherson and Josephine Pene, who allegedly experimented with a 'Matilda song' based on Josephine's playing of 'The Bold Fusilier' before Paterson arrived at Dagworth in 1895. Magoffin's research shows that Josephine Pene could not have arrived in the district before 1896 and her romance with Bob Macpherson did not occur until approximately 1899.
