"The Miners Ten Commandments"

Post  slippery79 on Thu May 02, 2013 11:13 am

This morning I found and printed out the "Miners ten commandments" by James M hutchings 1853.
And was wondering if there was an Early Australian version. I can't seem to find it if there was.
I would love to see a copy if any one has one.
I have not come across this item before & it's a classic.
But would love to read an Australian version. Thanks if you can help with my inquiry, Regards slippery79 Smile

Gday slippery,
Sounds interesting mate.
I reckon we could start our own,and maybe double it to 20 commandments.

#1 'Thou shalt not disclose the true location of your gold finds'

Thanks a LOT...Things just got real ugly cos I took your advice!...

The only shrink I know that could give "urgent phsyciatric help immediately" is Fred. He lives on the corner and is the local butcher. So, anyway, I gave Fred a call and said mate, a mate just said I need "urgent phsyciatric help immediately". Fred said what for? I said well, Fred, I would like to swing with ya daughter...30 minutes later he stopped waving that meat cleaver at me...So I said what is wrong Fred? I am already swinging with your wife one more wont hurt...and then things just got ugly.

lol!

A commandment for newbies.
Thou shall take a small unclean nugget with thy when heading off detecting so if you return home goldless you can present it to the partner and stop her/him moaning about your hobby being a waste of time and money.
