1884 - THE LATE MR. THOMAS HILL BARDWELL. - to the Editor of the Argus.

Sir,-Seeing a letter in your issue of yesterday it Captain Cudell and the establishment ot communication by water on the Darling River, 1 feel it but just to say that the name of the late Thomas Hill Bardwell should not be forgotten in that matter. Mr Bardwell was a colonial of 50 years' still bing a native ot Suffolk, in England When he first emigiated he engaged in squatting, both singly and in connexion with his brothel in law, Mr T. H Mate.

Having acquued a considerable fortune, he was induced to invest it in the purchase of stores established by Captain Cadell on the Darling River. It will be remembered that by keeping open the communication by water which Mr Bardwell did after Captain Cadell failed in it -facilite were greatly increased and inducements to occupy lund extended The afair, however, proved very disastrous to Mr. Bardwell, who lost all his fortune in the enterprise, and never afterwards being able to recover his position, he died with a broken heart. - SUSAN-MARIE BARDWELL. Oct. 22. - (Ref- The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957)(about) Previous issue Thursday 23 October 1884 Page 7).

IN PRETTY VALLEY - "Oberne Station", via Tarcutta.
- Dear Uncle Jeff- This is my first letter to the 'Banner,' and I hope you will accept me as one of your many nieces. I am twelve years of age. I should think I am very lucky, for my home is situated in the beautiful valley of Oberne, which is one of the prettiest valleys in New South Wales. My sister and I ride two miles to school on our bicycle. There are nineteen children attending Oberne school, and the teacher is Mrs. Callaghan.

We have had labout two inches of rain, and there is quite a filmy veil of greenness that thickens as we gaze. Would, one of my many cousins please send tho words of these two songs: 'The Unknown Soldier's Grave' and 'The Gay Caballero ' Would you please give me a pen-name Your loving niece, Louise Brooks. (Your pen-name is 'Palm Island.') - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 23 May 1930 Page 20).
