Letter to George Blakemore, Principal Wagga Wagga Teachers' College

Original hand-script letter to George Blakemore.

Re: a tentative inscription for the Dame Mary Gilmore Memorial Gates and her wish that the Gurwood Senior School be remembered in it. There is the possibility that Mary may not attend the official dedication ceremony because of her continuing bouts of illness and/or because her birthday party has been organised by the Australiasian Book Society around the raising of funds for the now Chair of Australia Literature. As informed by Alan Marshall, and very probably as much for her communist leanings as for her talent, she is now recognized by the chief literature societies of Moscow and Peking among others.
