It was reported "that Mr. Dine of 'Hambledon Hill' when his vault was opened, now four years after his death, to receive the body of his long time companion Thomas B. Rossieter, on May 4, no less than 7 large snakes were found inside and dispatched by James Martini. Dine and Rossiter, the topic of many a surplus glance and insinuation during their 25 years as companions, Dine's win of the Melbourne Cup, the squandering of his personal fortune on 'Hambledon Hill House', their complete public friendship hiding the unspoken of criminal acts, but also in their youth, their questionable bonds of friendship with and defense of Jewboy after his drowning. A drowning to avoid his inevitable hanging". 2009 Place made: Singleton, New South Wales, Australia
