||Text: Mr. Telford.Dear Sir/A few words from a great admirer/of dear old Phar Lap to sympathize/with you all for the death of that/wonderful horse. I will always regret/that I never saw him but someday will/go over to Canberra to see all lthat is left/of him now. We went 40 miles to see the/movie picture of Phar Lap winning/the Melbourne Cup the part I liked best/was the gentle way he took the piece of/hay from your little boys hand/If you have a spare photo of Phar Lap/would you send me one. Again I say/how sorry I am for the loss of the greatest/horse of all times but I do not think that/any of us will forget Phar Lap.
