Ned Kelly’s Jerilderie Letter read by Ruth Bray

In this historic letter written in 1879, Ned Kelly tells his own side of the story, with heart and fury. Ruth brings his voice to life, in her mesmerising reading.

The Jerilderie letter is an important document in Australian History. Ned Kelly tells his own story, and expresses his anger at the treatment of his mother, and brothers and sisters by the Victorian Police, and his version of what happened at Stringybark Creek, where three policemen were killed, and he issues a stern warning. Ned Kelly truly speaks from the Heart.
