Source: Yass Courier, report of nominations, 5 January p.2, results from 12 January, p.2 col.3 including booth results. Incomplete results published in SMH 12 January 1882, p.7 col.3, but the story indicates one booth to come and also reports a different final majority of 94 votes. Yass Courier report clearly more reliable and matches reported majority in SMH.
