47 – Final Readings: Henry Lawson EXTRA

As an appendix to Episode 44, Henry Lawson, today’s episode presents two final readings, two more humorous offerings.  We read a Banjo Paterson poem, called ‘The Man from Ironbark’ which I mentioned in Ep 44, and then a short story by Henry Lawson, titled ‘The Loaded Dog’.
