'The Year That Never Was' - Page 50:

'Captain Cook when he discovered the place.' Nat answered as if he was Hannah's student.
'Sorry Pa. Matthew Flinders named Australia when he circumnavigated the continent.' Hannah answered.
'You have all the information here, have you?' Nat asked pointing to the sheets of paper.
'Yes. All the information I found from my research.' She answered.
'Thank you. I will study everything you've written and use the information to make Australia a nation.' Nat finished his breakfast.

Settled in their seats on the train Hannah waved to her parents not knowing on their return. Arrangements made for Peter Greig to oversee their properties during their absence. A loud whistle sounded with the words, 'all aboard' called by the conductor. The train pulled away from the platform of Cunnamulla Railway Station.
Daisy waited when the train stopped for water at Coongoola Railway Siding handed Martha a basket filled with delicious food she prepared. No sooner the train stopped, they were again on their journey. Martha's excitement showed when hugging Daisy goodbye before leaving the Siding. Martha took a small handkerchief from her sleeve, dabbing her eyes.
'Coal from the engine'. She remarked before leaving her friend.

Next day the train arrived at Roma Street Railway Station in Brisbane. The Honourable Joseph Ryan, Esquire, M.L.A., waited on the platform to welcome his important guests. Waving to both when the train stopped. Shaking both their hands Joseph welcomed them. After instructing his staff to handle the luggage he escorted his friends to his waiting carriage.

'The Year That Never Was' - Page 51:
'I'll drop you off at your parent's home in Spring Hill, Nat.' He said after they left the railway station.
'Thank you Joe. What happens next. Your letter told us to be here today.' Nat tried to explain though frustrated. Being the Boss, he always thought through every detail before doing the work. Here: he treaded water. Didn't want to drown in rough waters; uncommon to him.
'I understand. Tonight I've invited guests to my home for a banquet to introduce you to the Premier of Queensland including cabinet members. My driver will pick you up at seven o'clock. Would this time suit you?' Joe asked.
'Nat. I'll need to go shopping for a new dress. My dresses won't be good enough for meeting such important people.' Martha exclaimed.
'My driver and carriage is at your disposal Martha. I'll have him return as soon as he delivers me to my home.' Joe answered.
'Joe, or The Honourable Joseph Ryan, Esquire, M.LA., thank you so much.' Martha expressed.
'For what you and Nat are doing to represent me by taking time from your life, this is a small service to do. If you'll excuse me. I send my driver and carriage for you soon.' Joe finished. Stepped down from the carriage, extended his hand to Martha who followed his instruction to step down onto the curve of the roadway. 'I'll talk to you both tonight.' He re-entered the carriage whilst his driver took control to guide them away from the curve.
George and Gloria were pleased to see their children again after their previous visit. After hugging both, Gloria said, 'I'll put the kettle on. Just made a fresh batch of scones.' All joined Gloria in the kitchen savouring the odour of fresh cooked scones.
'How're the sheep going?' George asked his son.
'No rain yet Dad. We have a bore on each of the properties. Peter Greig is keeping an eye on things while we're away.' Nat said in between eating a scone, drinking his tea.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I'LL BE ABSENT UNTIL 20TH JANUARY 2018. GOING ON A MYSTERY TOUR FOR FIVE DAYS.
