Hennessey, John David: The Outlaw. 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.
Unaccustomed tears filled Jack's eyes, but he smiled through them, as he pressed his young wife's hand, for he was his own man now, and free.
"Betsy," he said, "perhaps we will some day come back again; but it will be when the good times have come for Australia, and the dear old flag floats over a regenerated land."
"Yes," said Betsy, looking up into his face with eyes full of love; "we will come back again, Jack, 'when the day dawns, and the shadows flee away.'"
