1932 (11th May) Original letter from Keith Smith advising that the two covers carried by CWA Scott to Australia the month before were enclosed. Showing his humour, he writes, "The one addressed to myself "more in sorrow than anger" had 4d surcharge which you can credit against my drinking a/c when next I'm in England!!". A later paragraph has, "He landed in Sydney last Sunday + about 10,000 people turned out to welcome him". These covers are now AAMC 258 & cat. at $2800!
