L e o n o r a, W.A.       
November 24th. 1898.       

    H. C. HOOVER Esq.,

        P e r t h, W.A.

    Dear Sir,

        I was so pleased after looking over the “Sons of Gwalia” Mine that I feel it my duty before you leave Australia to compliment you very highly on your able and efficient management, notwithstanding the short time you have been here and the many difficulties you have had to contend with on this new and remote Goldfield. You have my very best wishes for success in your appointment to China, and I am sure you must be pleased to leave W.A. especially this faraway part of the country.

        With kindest regards to yourself and Mr Hooper when you meet him, I remain,

Yours sincerely,
    Harry James
