Mr. P.J. Hogan,
67, Chapel Street,
Bendigo,
Victoria,
AUSTRALIA.

Dear Mr. Hogan,

At the present moment our Mr. Quilter is abroad, but before he left for South America he asked us to write to you and thank you for your extremely interesting letter of the 11th September and your kind gift of the parcel of food, which arrived here recently.

Your very generous gesture is greatly appreciated by all here, and it is difficult for us to express our thanks adequately.

It was agreed that the fairest way of distributing your parcel was to those still with us now who were working here at the time that the particular parachute which saved your life was manufactured. Lots were drawn, therefore, amongst these workers, and the eight people who received something from the parcel have written to personally to thank you.

We have also given your address to our Australian Representative in Sydney, Light Aircraft Pty., Ltd., 14, City Road, Sydney, and no doubt you will be hearing from the Managing Director, Mr. G.H. Mills, whom we felt sure would like to make contact with you.

Mr. Quilter was most interested in the contents of your letter, and in fact all of us here were interested to learn first hand of post war conditions and progress on the other side of the world. As you will appreciate, conditions here are far from normal, but the majority of the country is working hard in a determined effort to restore life to more

normal channels, and your letter was very much appreciated. Indeed it is hoped that you will find time to write to us occasionally in the future and give us more of your news.

Once again may we offer you our very sincere thanks.

Yours sincerely,

William J. Sadler.
