Thomas Struttles and Daniel Bullock in the service of government, charged with being out of quarters at improper hours and for ill-treating a fellow prisoner. Thomas Liddell states...I am government servant to William Inness. My master has gone to Sydney and left me in charge of the house. Last night about 1/2 past 8 oclock I was standing in the verandah of the house when Strattles and Bullock came into the garden. Strattles came up to me, he had a heavy piece of wood in his hand such as shoemakers use. He struck me with it and I fell. I thought they had come to rob the house, but having struck me they ran away. Strattles admits having struck Liddel but says it was with a switch. He went to Mr. Inness in search of a woman. Bullock denies having entered the garden, says he accompanied Strattles to the paling in search of a woman. Strattles and Bullock ordered to sleep in the Barracks until further orders
