French met with a painful accident on Saturday while feeding a barkmill at Whereat's Tannery, whereby he had his right hand mangled in the cogs of the machine. A lad named Westbury saw the accident, and pulled off the bolt, saving French's life. The unfortunate lad was taken to the hospital, where Dr. Morice deemed it prudent to amputate the arm below the elbow. Tho youth is doing as well and can be expected."
    However, William was not defeated by this accident as shown by this report in the Maitland Mercury in December of that year :- "A few months ago a young man named William French, a resident of Tenterfield, met with an accident which deprived him of his right hand, but through the exertions o£ some friends sufficient money was raised to enable him to start a small business. Since then French has mustered the mysteries of wood-carving, fret work, etc, and some specimens of his talent are said to be splendidly executed. He has also with his left hand alone constructed a richly carved cheffonier, and the steady pluck and industry which be has shown all round in overcoming trouble and pain is worthy of all commendation."
