  1. I have seen a robust sober man driven perfectly mad for the time being
    by two portions of so-called rum, supplied to him at
    one of these brilliant shanties. Not only does a digger
    know that it’s very possible he may discover a good deal of gold with very little trouble, but, worse still, he knows he could work very hard without getting any gold at all. On the Early days in the Peak Downs Field from “The Peak Downs Telegraph”.
