TO THE EDITOR HISTORY OF ALICE SPRINGS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 20 September 1947
TO THE EDITOR HISTORY OF ALICE SPRINGS Sir. — There has arisen some little misunderstanding between myself and the public, which I would like put right. For some years now the people of this country have been conscious of the fact that I have been compil ing a history of this country. My little booklet is not the history, but merely a very small portion of it. The actual history may be years in completing ! but if the public wait long enough I trust it is something worth while they have been waiting for when they do read it. Wishing you all suc cess. (Mrs.) A. V. PURVIS
