A copy of an extract from Dr Story's diary, the original dating from November 1855, the copy taken by Mrs Collins Amos of Glen Gala in 1929. The diary entry concerns the apprehension of the bushranger 'Dido', who had assaulted Story and Mrs and Miss Cotton while travelling. Earlier on, Dido and a companion had confronted the police constable J Watson, and stolen his horse. With Mr Fergusson, Story assisted Watson in apprehending Dido, an action Story felt entitled him to part of the government reward offered for Dido's capture.
