Albury Banner and Wodonga Express 7th April, 1911 p36
A clever ruse adopted to trap the alleged writer of a threatening letter was described at Galway, Ireland. An American named Michael Walsh was remanded in connection with an attempt to obtain money from Count Blake. A letter was written to the count, who resides near Kinvara, threatening that if he did not leave £10 under a specified stone he would ‘get the same death as did Leech’s horse’ which was shot a fortnight ago.
Count Blake, acting on police advice, left an envelope containing two half-crowns under the stone and Walsh was caught by the police after he had removed the envelope and put it in his pocket.
