Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 118
[Thursday 27 April 1916]
Court again We work 8 ½ hours daily in the heat in Court .
Have just heard about the men rioting in Sydney & Liverpool if those are the sort of men who are coming over, We would be better without them, it needs a strong man & a good man to handle a crowd like that but what a start for a young soldier, it is almost unbelievable.
The Copts here held a Bazaar for the British + [Red Cross] & made about 800/-/-. I am keeping a little Water Color of a Sheik for you Mother.
Do you ever do any painting now, am so glad to hear you can walk so much better.
Khamsin or Sirocco tonight all Dust .
