THE Telegram

There's very little I can say about this shocking 1907 telegram which was sent by a Charles MORGAN from the Broome Station to Henry PRINCEP, who at the time was, Chief Protector of Aborigines for Western Australia, and based in Perth.

I do not know who Charles MORGAN was. I suppose I could find out, but then I don't really want to know.

Henry PRINCEP, recieved many such requests. What his replies were, I don't know. But he did file them away, perhaps for us to reflect and be ashamed.

For those who have trouble reading the telegram, it reads:-

COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA
POSTMASTER-GENERAL'S DEPARTMENT, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

20 JUL 07

TELEGRAM from Broome Station
Addressed to H. Princep Esq,
prot. of aborigines

Send cask arsenic exterminate aborigines letter will follow

More Whoppers Families Tell You

Just reading about Sue Graham's post regarding the whoppers families
tell brought to mind a whopper in our family.

I really can't mention names, because I am sworn to secrecy.

But a certain person's great grandmother was so secretive about her age that
she went so far as to cut up her marriage certificate and hide the pieces
inside her handbag, never ever leaving the bag out of her sight.

No ammount of pleading or trickery would loosen her lips as to her age.

Then on the 7 September in 1989, with all the family and friends gathered,
preparing the house and food for her birthday celebrations,
(we still only knew the date and not the age) the doorbell rang,

"Will somebody get the door?" she called.

Can you imagine our surprise when we saw it was a telegram from the Queen;
congratulating her on reaching 100 years of age!

God love her, she died the next year on the 14 April 1990

You see! she had never wanted anyone to know that she was 7 years older than her husband - It was like that back then.
