Hennessey, John David: A Tail of Gold. V1. 3 Mar 2012

John David Hennessey (1847 – 31 July 1935), also known as Rev. J. D. Hennessey and David Hennessey, journalist and author, was born in London and went to Australia in 1875. He lived in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Hennessey was a Methodist and Congregational minister and preached at the Wharf street Congregational Church in Brisbane and the Pitt street Congregational Church in Sydney. He founded the Australian Christian World in 1886 and edited it until 1891. In 1894 he edited the Australian Field, a weekly agricultural paper.
Hennessey retired from journalism when about seventy years old, however he continued his literary work until shortly before his death, which occurred after a brief illness. He was buried at the Dromana Cemetery.
As well as short stories in magazines in Australia and England, Hennessey published several novels. One, The Outlaw, was awarded second prize of £400 in a £1,000 novel competition.

Excerpt
A man read from an old diary—'In the miner's dolly-pot it yielded a fair sample of what one might expect to get out of a bulk crushing from the gold-bearing reef of Humanity. Panned out in the prospecting dish, the sample showed a tail of gold, which, if not wholly satisfactory, gave encouragement to proceed...'
'But, Joe...'
'No buts, please. I'm just weary of the lure of life, and the lure of women, and the lure of gold. If people would only say what they positively think, and have actually seen, and really know; but they won't. So it's good for them, sometimes, to have the honest truth told in homely Saxon. If you think "damn" and mean "damn" write damn, and not D and a dash. I had a theory myself once; but it was a broken theory. Broken? Confound it, no!' he shouted. 'It was smashed to atoms...and by the hand of a woman.'
That was all we could get out of him, so I have called this story—which is largely his—'A Tail of Gold.'
