Hennessey, John David: Wynnum White's Wickedness. V1. 2 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.
And so Miriam and Wynn were married, and lived and loved in kindly fashion as do so many others. But there were times when Louie's words and face and presence became so real, that he longed to touch her hand, and listen to her voice, and see her face, as in the days of old. Then from a drawer, never opened save in secret, there would be brought forth a portrait painted on ivory. And Wynnum would gaze long and lovingly upon the face, and seem to hear again the rustle of silken robes, and feel the touch of a warm loving woman's hand.
