Hennessey, John David: Temptation on a Tower. V1. 4 Mar 2012
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.
Needless to say that after this affair the cousins were on a very different footing. As Malcolm confessed afterward, too, he had fallen in love with his cousin over her book. But Alice would have it that the descent from the Tower had a good deal to do with Malcolm's prompt proposal and early marriage. "Why," she said, "I watched you both, and the way he held you in his arms told me that he loved you. I almost wished that I had gone down myself instead, and that Frank had been there ready to have caught me." However, in due time, either she caught Frank or Frank caught her, it does not much matter which.
