Further comments

Cannot read full name of referee, but initials are correct - name could be Begeuchard.
Letter from Secretary of State in Melbourne on 23rd December 1904 asking for her husband's original nationality etc. The letter also mentions that she filled in the form incorrectly and querying whether she was a citizen/or a naturalised citizen of any other country.
Further letter from Johanne Schulz to the Secretary of State on 5th January 1905 giving her husband's birthplace as Germany, and that he became a naturalised Australian citizen on 1st August 1864, No. 199, Book 14. She claims not to be a citizen any country and that up to the present she has not been a naturalised subject. (Query - she is surely naturalised because of her husband's naturalisation?)
Her ship the Wilhelmsburg was built by Reiherstieg Schiffswerfte & Maschinenfabrik A. G., Hamburg, and the owner was: Godeffroy, Joh. Ces. & Sohn, Hamburg.
