Letter to H. Aubrey Hall, 28 February 1895
Feb 28, 95
I was very pleased to get your note and the copy of the paper containing an account of the life & sudden end of my old friend your late father. I have often thought that I should have liked to take a trip down your way & see the old place and always thought of your father as one whom I should have been especially glad to meet and him again some of the old scenes of times long gone by.
You will have seen before this reaches you that a short sketch of your father's career was published in the West Australian immediately after his death. However I will place your letter & the paper in the hands of the editor of the "W.A." & if he thinks that this is enough fresh material he will no doubt publish it.
You will I can say be pleased to learn that the "old hands" are making provision for the erection of a suitable memorial over the grave of him who was a friend to all.
