Further comments

Two more addresses - unable to list - Waverly, Sydney, and Balmain, Sydney. No dates on any of them, and all but one are suburbs of Sydney.
Cannot read referees surname, but it appears to start with a K.
Referee lives in 36 Edwin Street, Croydon, and Dorothy Behrens lives in 29 Edwin Street, Croydon!
There is a letter asking for her husband's original nationality and how long she has resided in Queensland (9 years) and New South Wales (17 years, split between a number of addresses in Sydney)
