Inscriptions & Markings
326.2 pencilled date 30/4/58, in blue pen "Dear Wilf, This is the full list of those circularized for the meeting of the Committee at the No. 2 Committee Room at Melbourne Town Hall on Wednesday 30th. Most of the circulars were posted in the city on the morning of Thursday 24, so should have been delivered not later than Saturday 26th. Yours was held because I thought I might see you at the Shrine on Anzac Eve. Yours etc. Frank Doolan."
