NOTES
ROSEWOOD LETTER
* Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser, 27 July 1901

On Thursday evening Miss Drummond entertained a number of friends at a birthday party, which was held in the Farmers' Hall. The building was nicely decorated with greenery and bunting. About 60 persons were present, and a very pleasant time was passed in dancing and social games.
During the evening Miss Drummond and her sister, Mrs. Stroobant, executed a dance in excellent style. Several songs were rendered by Misses Hanlon, Hohnke, Drummond (who was obliged to respond to an encore), and Mr. Reinhardt. The accompaniments were played by Misses Hohnke and Hanloo. About mid-night an excellent cold collation was served on the stage, one of the principal features of the festive board being a handsome three tier birthday cake, After supper, dancing was resumed, and, as the floor was in excellent order and splendid music was provided by Misses Hohnke and Hanlon (piano) and Messrs. F. O'Donnell, A. Dobson, and P. Lenehan (violin), the pastime was much enjoyed. Mr. O'Donnell acted as M.C. The catering, including the supply of the handsome cake, was principally carried out by Mr. C. Stroobant, though some of the toothsome dainties were obtained from Mr. F. J. Ireland, of Ipswich. The guests departed in the "wee sma' 'oore," after spending a delightful evening. Miss Drummond (who was ably assisted by Mrs. Stroobant and Messrs. Stroobant and Bunney in entertaining the large number of guests) was the recipient of many valuable presents and congratulations during the evening.
