The Taking of Cerberus Hoax

Two articles published by the Melbourne Herald in July 1876 have been reproduced. They describe, as if fact, the capture of Cerberus by pirates and their attempt to extort 3,000,000 from the Victorian Government. The hoax has been able to be made available due to the hard work of Cherylle Thurling who transcribed the articles from poor quality microfilms. They are able to be viewed as a webpage and in pdf format.
