MATRAVILLE TRAGEDY.
According to a report received from the Coast Hospital late last night, there has been no change in the condition of Mrs. Nancy Burt Sneddon Ogilvie, of 15 Arthur-street, Randwick, who was seriously wounded by William Bourke in the tragic shooting affray at a lonely spot on the Long Bay-roud, Matraville, late on Tuesday night. The medical officers at the institution regard Mrs. Ogilvie's condition as very serious, but they express every hope for her recovery.

Off topic, but Naomi, is it you in your avatar? She is so beautiful, and a dreamy dress!

Hi Macushla, the woman in my avatar is my Nana (as a bridesmaid). She certainly was quite a stunner. That photo is a favourite of mine :)
