TRANSCRIPT 1918 Letter from Sarah McLean (nee Thompson) to son Laurence....indicates (assuming) that:- (a) It might have been written in 1918, (b) Allan came home, probably by train, for just one night and had to leave again - presumably to return to where he was working, (c) Laurence was living, with his family, south of Tintinara, (d) Sarah was organizing to send a shovel to Laurence which he had been asking about. (e) Sarah was planning on going on the Express train next Sunday morning - perhaps to visit Laurence. TRANSCRIPT Sunday 9th/1918 Dear Laurie, Your father came home yesterday & went back this evening. I enquired the freight on shovel & it is one shilling by passenger & more by the goods train, so your father told me to send it so as we could not take it well in the Express as we are going by Express next Sunday morning all being well. I will send the shovel next Wednesday 12th by passenger train, will send it by goods to Tintinara then it will go on by passenger from there, so you can enquire for it on Thursday morning. If you do not get it then will you enquire on Saturday morning because if the Goods is late on Wednesday well I will send it Friday so you understand, I will book the guard the money and to pay for it, he will book it from Tintinara. What do you think of this card. Love from mother to all.
