'London! Having voyaged from Australia to England in the R.M.S. Mangalore, the Browns of Bangaroo – Mum and Dad, 20-year-old Cynthia, and flapper Betty – at last realise a life-long dream. London, of which they have heard so much. London, with its colour and romance. They are sick of their ship-board companions, especially of Mr. Gibbs and little Rodney. And now ... But things are not always as visioned.'
'The Browns of Bangaroo', The Australasian, 10 July 1937, p.9.
