Marriage*1925 Spouse: William John Allen. VIC, Australia, #M1676.1,3
 
Correspondence*26 Jul 1926 I have the honour to apply for the position of sewing mistress at this school, as advertised by the head teacher.
I was born on July 26th, 1903, at North Melbourne.
During 1912-1916, I was a pupil at Cambridge Ladies' College, Albert Park. From 1917-1920, I attended Stott's Business College. From both these schools I have recently obtained certificates of educational qualifications, character, and ability (Please find both attached).
Miss Croft of Cambridge Ladies' College is in error as to the number of years I attended. At this school I received several years instruction in sewing of all kinds.
I have sound general health and shall obtain a medical certificate if same is necessary.
Since June 9th, I have been employed at this school as temporary sewing mistress and have experienced a great deal of pleasure and profit from the work.
I have the honour to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant,
Florence V. Allen
