A brief news report gossiping about Kate Kelly’s trip to Geelong.

Geelong Advertiser (Vic. : 1859 – 1929), Friday 1 October 1880, page 2


A well authenticated rumor has been iucirculation for the past few. days, to the effect that the celebrated Kate Kelly, of Strathbogie renown, paid a flying visit to Geelong the other evening. There is in a certain part of this town a woman who claims to be able to discern the future in the life of each of her patrons by glancing at the wrinkles in the face or the lines in the palm of one’s hand. She has a few customers, happily all females. It is said that Kate Kelly was recognised as being one of the visitors, and what her object was can, of course, only be surmised.
