  • 27 Jan 1928: YOUTHFUL THIEVES. Stole Money and Sweets.
    In Oakleigh court yesterday, Frank Higgins, 19 years, of Cromwell-street, Caulfield, and Joseph Bell, 17 years, of Wattle Tree-road, Malvern, were charged with having stolen £3 and a jar of "snowballs." valued at 4/. the property of G. Lothian, confectioner, Poath-road, Hughesdale.
    Greta Binding, shop assistant, employed by Mr. Lothian, said that about 10 p.m. on 7th inst. the accused came into the shop and asked for a candle, as they had no light for a cart they were driving. She went into the residential portion of the premises to get one, and after accused left she missed three £1 notes from the till and a jar of "snowballs" from the counter.
    Richard Ellis, of Harrison-street, Malvern, said that at the invitntion of accused, he went for a drive with them. While they went into the shop in Poath-road he remained in the cart. Bell ran out of the shop with a jar of "snowballs," which he put in the cart. He did not know anything about money having been stolen, but he knew Bell had taken the "snowballs."
    Constable Dodemaide of Malvern, produced statements by accused, and Bell in his statement said that he took the "snowballs" and Higgins the money. Higgins in his statement said that Bell had taken both the money and the sweets.
    Mr. Corr, in making an appeal for leniency, said that Bell had asked him to tell the court that Higgins's statement to the police was correct. Restitution would be made to the shopkeeper.
    Accused were sentenced to two months' imprisonment, but the sentences were suspended on the usual first offender conditions.5

    Gone from all a smiling face.
    Those happy, cheerful ways;
    A heart that won so many friends
    In happy bygone days.
    And through those hours of suffering,
    Yet making our lives worth while.
    Now anchored in my memory
    Is your sweet, brave parting smile.

  • 9 Aug 1923: THEY CALL HER "PATSY." Beaconsfield, July 24, 1923.
    Dear Aunt Patsy.—This is the first time I have written to you. I am 12 years old, and am in the seventh grade at school. I go to the State school here, as there is no other to go to. I have four brothers and four sisters: their names are Jack, May, Chrissie, Mick, Norman, Nellie, Harold, and Patricia. Patricia is the baby; she is four months old. We call her "Patsy." Beaconsfield is surrounded by bush and hills. There is a creek running through here, too; it is called the Cardinia Creek. Many people come up here from Melbourne on a Sunday to get gum leaves, heath and other wild flowers which grow in the bush, to take home with them. We have to go up to Berwick to Mass, about two miles. The church is on top of a big hill, so that seems to make the walk longer. My brother Jack works at the Wonthaggi railway station as a lad porter; he is 15 years old. As there is no more news, I must close. With love to the captain, the first mate, and yourself.—I remain, your new niece, GRETA HUDSON (12).
    P.S.—When will I send answer to Competition No. 8 in? I am enclosing a photo of myself and Chrissie in our Confirmation clothes. I didn't turn out good.—Greta. I think you will "turn out good" in the by-and-by, anyway, Greta! Now "Patsy" ought (ahem!) to turn out good, "and very good," and never once be horrid!—A.P.3
  • 20 Sep 1923: IN THE BUSH OF BEACONSFIELD. Beaconsfield, Sept. 6th, 1923.
    Dear Aunt Patsy,—I am going to try for the letter-writing competition for this month. I was glad to see my last letter in print, so I thought I would write again. Beaconsfield is not a big place. There are two stores, one hotel, one butcher's, one baker's, and one blacksmith's, two fruit and lolly shops, and a post office. There is also a Foundling Hospital. Sometimes there are as many as sixty babies there, and there is a convent rest-home belonging to St. Vincent's Hospital. Many Sisters come at different times for a breath of fresh country air after the hospital nursing, and there are also some teaching Sisters at holiday times. My two sisters, a nurse from the Foundling Hospital, and myself often go out in the bush on Sunday afternoons and get armfuls of lovely heath, gum leaves, and coral ferns. The bush is lovely just now. We are practising for a concert at our school now, and the proceeds will go towards funds for a ward for the children at the Warragul Hospital.
    As it is getting late, I will close.
    —I remain, your fond niece, GRETA HUDSON (12).
    Heath and gum leaves, and coral fern,
    for an armful of these I shall often yearn.
    'Tis you are the lucky one, Greta of the hills!—A.P.4
