To CCP Standish from ACP Nicolson re: enquiry

VPRS 4967 Consignment P0 Unit 2 Item 35 Record 1 Document: Assistant Commissioner requests an enquiry into police proceedings re Kelly Gang, and allegations made against him by Superintendant Hare

24/07/1880

Overview

This brief letter to the Chief Commissioner of Police, written by Acting Chief Commissioner Nicolson and dated 24 July 1880, was dispatched less than a month after the siege at Glenrowan. In his letter, Nicolson once again asks for an inquiry to be held in relation to police proceedings in regards to the Kelly Gang as well as his concern pertaining to a report written by Superintendent Hare which contained allegations of a serious nature against Nicolson. On the reverse side of the page are annotations made by Frank Standish, the Chief Commissioner, who referred the matter to the Honourable Chief Secretary, Robert Ramsay.
