A fascinating retrospective account of Townsend aka Waxend and his 'delightful spreadeagling' appeared in the Adelaide newspaper 'The Register' on Saturday 11 April 1914. The article includes the full text of this 'Address to the Electors of Onkaparinga' in 1857. Some years later, he released an 'Address to the Electors of Sturt'; apart from the change of place-name, it is identical in content to this item.
