Letter by CJD to R.H. Croll 1920.06.19

June 19th 1920

Dear Bob,

I send a few photos by this mail. They are a poor lot, but the best I can find.

We shall be in Toolangi only for another couple of week-ends I think. We have to spend some time in Melbourne before going on to Sydney where our visit follows the prince's. This matter of precedence is a damned nuisance.

So you had better come along, say, on Friday week, July 2. Don't forget to bring that copy of the "Birth" parodies, also the original publication. I am curious to see what I was accused of.


PS Please be careful of the "Age 5" photo and be sure to let me have it back.

CROLL Collection MS 8910, 1202/1(b) - State Library of Victoria.

The "prince" referred to was the then Prince of Wales, who was visiting Australia at the time of this letter.
