    June 7th 1900
    My Dear Nephew
    I am writing you these lines hoping it will find you all well as it leave us at present, I received your kind letter on the 28th of May, I was very sorry to hear of your mothers death and my sister. I am very glad you wrote and told me of her death. I have left my old farm where I was for some many years. I have sold it to my two 2nd and 3rd oldest sons for 1800.00 pound and I bought this one, but I never came to live on it not till two years ago, this land is joining the township of Dugandan, my two farms were two of the best in the District, they were the first two that was taken up, when the land was thrown open for selection. My three eldest sons are married. William, James, and George and my oldest daughter Kate. My daughter Nellie has a dressmakers shop in Boonah just one mile from where we are living. I hope Maurice will get back from South Africa alright, he was a nice boy that time when I was at home, 32 years ago. I got a letter from brother George last week, I wrote him a long letter about 2 years & a half ago, but I never got any answer, I hope he got it because I had a lot of news in it, I think the war will soon be over now. I see Kruger has cleared out from Pretoria with 1.000.000 of soverigns to Lydenburg the last place of stand. It is be hoped they will colar him and the money before he gets out of the country with it. The invalided men of South Africa went through our town the other night on their route to Brisbane, & they were warmly accepted the governor gave them a special acceptance at the Government House in Brisbane. Brisbane is only 60 miles from where we live. The terminace of our branch railway is a half a mile from where we live. There is a great chance in the District where I am living, since I came to Australia first. It was all open bush, no fences anywhere except here and there, every 30 or 40 mile where the stations was, they had a small paddock to keep a few horses in so as they could get them easy, there was any amount of wild cattle and pigs, The last wild bullock that was on my farm good many years ago. I raced him one night and shot him and I have got his horns polished and hanging up in the room & they are a very large pair, now the country all around here is thickly populated with settlers with well improved fertile farms. I have five grandsons and a granddaughter. From your affectionate Uncle
    James Thomas Hooper
