Address: Master Bill Sloss / Ballarat College / Ballarat - Victoria / Australia
Letter: 21/3/29 / This is just a tiny corner of Paris. It is a very busy city and the taxis and cars make a dreadful noice - far greater noise than in London. Though traffic is just as great - We are having lovely weather to see this beautiful city. We are all well. Hope you are. Daddy is visiting hospital. Love from us all - Your loving mother, Bernice A Sloss.
