I put it inside the Box of Blood nor thought of the man I’d slain, till at midnight came like a ‘whelming flood, God’s word – and the Brand of Cain.’ Written by W.R. Winspear and drawn by Claude Marquet, St Andrew’s Place, Sydney. Authorised by P.C. Evans and J.M. Power, Macdonell House, Sydney.” Ref: SLV, Museum Victoria.
