A GOOD CATCH. West Blowering. via Tumut.

Dear Uncle Jeff, Our school holidays are nearly ended, and I am sony. I am setting 15 rabbit traps. In one rabbit trap I first caught a young rabbit, and then I set it again, and caugut a big brown snake, nearly 5ft. long. We have finished carting hay now, and are cutting saffron thistles. Did you get any presents for Christmas, uncle? I did a gold tie pin, a self filling fountain pen and 5/. The grass is nice and green about here now. Would you ask some of the 'Banner' cousins to send in the song, ' Peggy 0 'Neill.' I would like some of the cousins to write to me. Love to aunty, the 19, and your self. Kind regards from Ken Johnson. (Five-feet of brown snake is a good catch,! Ken. Did you skin him? Did you use your new fountain pen to write this letter?) - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 25 January 1924 Page 13).

1930 - GOOD OLD SANTA - West Blowering, Tumut.

DEAR Uncle Jeff, I am eight years old, but I don't go to school. I get my lessons from the correspondence school, and I like them too. Santa Claus brought me three nice presents for Christmas and I got a nice lot of other presents as well. I was in Albury for a holiday two years ago, and I liked it very much. Next time I go to Albury I will call on you, that is if you would like me to. I live on a dairy farm 12 miles from Tumut, and we milk about 32 cows. We have some little calves and pigs; Our fruit is just getting ripe and the birds try to steal some of it. I have a little black kitten arid I call him Satan. He is very fond of playing. Your new niece, Bessie Johnson. (I am delighted to hear from you,, Bessie, and I would be pleased to see you. The only difficulty is to find me at home as I'm often away.) - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 24 January 1930 Page 20).

1930 - A PRIZE WINNER West Blowering

DEAR Uncle Jeff, Thank you very much for the 2/6 prize. I heard Amy Johnson land in Sydney the other day, and it was very nice. We have a little puppy. He chases the cats and goes rabbiting with Ken. We had some very strong wind and it blew a lot of limbs off the trees. I have four dollies; their names are Billy Boy, Joan, Jean, Mabel. We went to Batlow and saw a lot of fruit lying on the ground. From your niece, Bessie Johnson; - (I think Batlow is a lovely place. Once took the wrong turning at Wondalga going from there to Tumut. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 27 June 1930 Page 20).
