A pint of rum every morning

Sir John Roberston served as Premier of New South Wales five times. People said that he drank a pint of rum every morning for 35 years, to which Robertson replied: "None of the men who have left footprints in this country have been cold water men."

He was 74 years old when he died. His grave is marked by an unusual thimble-shaped stone.
