Often cuttings are from Saturday supplements or the 'Pink Page' of the Bulletin. Topics reflect women's interests: anecdotes and folklore; poems and stories by Australian authors {e.g article about Marie Bjelke Peterson, Tasmania, novelist(; local history (e.g paragraph about descendents living in Tasmania of Capt. Michael Connor of the First Fleet); news of members of the family (e.g brother, A R Blackmore enlists and resigns from teaching at Adventure bay School).
