9/50 Recovered measles patients, Katanning, 1909
Verso: Natives all recovered from measles – 40 patients at once and no help from Katanning as measles was raging there. Doctors and nurses all required – lost adults and children daily at Katanning. I did not lose one of my 40 patients!!! And so am giving them a feast at the Katanning store – everything they asked for.

9/51 Jamborit and his mate (probably Warin), 2 copies
Verso: This is Jamborit and his mate. Both died near Palinup (Salt River). Jamborit buried his babbingger and stayed near the grave till his own death came. A great love like that of David and Jonathan was between these two and one could not survive the other.
