"I am sorry to miss making the acquaintance of Mr Becke. Strangely enough I have been, only the other day, reading again his ""Reef and Palm"". Apart from the great interest of the stories what I admire most is his perfect unselfishness in the telling of them.[...] I haven"t seen yet the ""The First Fleet Family"" and have a great curiosity."
