letters received by (he Bev. J, Howell Pf ice from his son, Lieutenant Price, who ia on active service :- ' Harrismith, O.r/.0., March 1st, I'.'02. My Dear Father anr.t Mother, - We are buck here again from Heiibroa after a 12 d*ye' drive, which has bees» very successful, resulting in the capture of over 700 Boers, and come CO or 70 killed and wounded. What is more it finished on Majuba Day, Cronje'e capture, and alf o my 21st birthday. We bid one or two exciting times. Of course we were all out on outpost, so you may imagine we had a wearying time, and yet some of them say I am fatter than ever on it all. Just after crossing the blockhouse line, Vrcde and Tafe'VKop, across which we had driven thc Boeney we came on some 200 of them, and they 'taptnred six of our men, and we killed this ¿had a little excitement on my own.

COLO. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
COLO. Mr. Editor,-I hope and truet that your newly-Btarted journal will receive a liberal share of support in the dis- trict ; not that I have any aversion to your newsy and readable contem- porary, but because I think there is ample room for two papers in a dis- trict like the Hawkesbury. Now for a few Colo items, just to give you a start. Mr. J. Eather and family have shifted to Lower Hawkesbury to reside. Several cases of oranges have already gone to market from Colo. I don't think they were over ripe, though. The river water is still very salty for about six miles up Colo, and rosi dents have had to sink wells in order tn obtain fresh water. Fish are very plentiful at present ia the river; but they are generally pretty quiet at night, and thus fisher- men seldom get decent hauls. Mr. P. Hennessy, of Kurrajong, is about to shift his 50 odd head of cattle from Tweedsdale paddock, owing to the scarcity of grass therein. Farmers are sowing wheat, barley, &c, for winter feed ...

WEBB'S CREEK. Mr. D. O'Brien, of Leet's Vale, has purchased a handsome sulky pony. Mrs. W. and Miss A. Douglass, of Sydney, are on a viBit to their parents at Webb's Creek. Mr. W. Bose sent away about one hundred railway sleepers to Brooklyn 'da week. They are as fine a lot as ort? would wish to see. Large quantities of jam melons are being shipped away to market from the Macdonald River, and are good property just now. Mr. A. Jones is making rapid pro- gress with Mr. C. Douglass's new house. It will be quite an ornament to the Creek when finished. Mr. D. Books killed a death, adder last week measuring 27 inches in length. The reptile was handed over to Dr. PieBley, who has it preserved in spirits. There is every likelihood of a match being made, for £25 aside, between Mr. A. Bose's Elsie and Mr, J. Bose's GOBO (late Cronje), with 8st. in the saddle. Mr. B. ti. Books journeyed to Laguna to a pigeon match last week. He missed the £20 prize, but won a good 6weep. He is a really good s...

The Hawkesbury Herald. WINDSOR, THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1902. A NECESSITY OF THE TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
WINDSOR, TBUBSDAXj. MAY JL, 190^ A NECESSITY OF THE TIME Although we read in the metro politan daily papers such phrases a " no case yesterday," " yesterday ; clean day," and so on, it is only to apparent-close our eyes to it as w&lt; will-that the plague has come t&lt; stay. There are those who go th&lt; length of asserting-and they Lav much to support them-that th« scourge is nothing new in Sydney although it is only of late that atten tion has been directed to it. Hei e tofore, they say, the doctors an«: sanitary authorities treated it ai something else. Certainly then have been always rats in the city and it is unlikely that they hav&lt; developed the bubonic disease foi the first time within the past few months. The probability is thal they have had the disease in tht same virulent form 6ince th« establishment of the settlement by Governor Phillip, for it is a fair pre- sumption that the rodents wer« introduced by the first and subse- quent fleet...
