OAKLANDS RD. HANWELL. LONDON. W.7. ENGLAND

His Worship The Mayor of Ballarat

17th. August. 1953

Your Worship,

We, the pupils of this class, are attempting to follow the forthcoming Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand by means of letters to the Dominions.

Already we have been delighted to receive letters from the Mayors and other Officials of cities and towns in Australia.

These letters, together with the envelopes and stamps, are being displayed to form a chain along the route of our queen.

May we, Sir, have the honour of welcoming a few lines from you to represent Ballarat in our display? A letter would be given a great reception here,

Thanking you, Sir, in anticipation of your kindness.

Yours respectfully,

Class 3
