Patrick White's House, Auction Result

This morning's "Sydney Morning Herald" reports that Patrick White's house was passed in at auction yesterday. Against an estimated value of $3.5 million, the highest bid lodged was for $1.8 million. "A private treaty sale is now being negotiated."

This result has prompted the National Trust to resume its calls for State and Federal Governments to pitch in to purchase the house for the nation.
