Charge Against Medico

The Sydney Morning Herald

20 April 1858

The celebrated Dr. Owen has made himself still more notorious by making a savage attack on the editor of the Border Post (Mr. George Mott), in striking him with a heavy-handled whip on the head.

It arose from an article appearing in the paper reflecting on the conduct of the medical men in Albury in not going to see an unfortunate mail-driver who met with a severe accident the previous night by the capsizing of the vehicle, about twenty miles from this, at Mullengandra, and who was then lying in a very dangerous state.

The matter will assume a charge brought against the Medico at the police court.
