Friends, Chinese & University Men

Friends, Chinese & University Men

Sir,—I am an overseas Chinese student from Singapore doing Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney. I am also doing a part-time Arts Course in view of taking Law later on. I am very keen on people from other foreign countries, their ways of life, their customs and their local situations at the present time, in view of all my keen interests. I would be very glad if you could help me to get to know some boys and girls of my age who are willing to correspond with me in view of exchanging views and ideas to improve each others' general knowledge. I am just 20 years of age. I would also very much like to get to know boys and girls who are Chinese living or settling in your honourable country.

If at all possible, I would prefer to correspond with your local University undergraduates, as I am an University boy myself. Kindly also tell those who would be writing to me to send me a photo of their honourable self, I shall be sending one of myself as soon as I hear from any of them.

My hobbles are: Swimming, Camping, Hiking, Hunting and Correspondences with foreigners. So much for the moment, and thanking you in your most sincere anticipation. Hoping to hear from them in the near future.

Yours gratefully,

Lim Jee Seng,

15 Kelsey Street, Arncliffe, Sydney, N.S.W., Australia.
