|Adam Lindsay Gordon was a Poet, Horseman, Politician, Speculator|
& Policeman. His epitaph bears the words: -
"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone:
KINDNESS in another's trouble.
COURAGE in your own."
It seems he had a very sad end committing suicide at Brighton Beach
the day after his book "Bush Ballads and Galloping Rhymes" was published.
