Bedroom Main

You have given me a deep well of content and met the urges of my nature completely. I have had supreme happiness in your love and loveliness…
All my love and all my heart and all my gratitude for all you have been and are … the beloved of my soul.

John Curtin, letter to Elsie, 30/9/1941

'Certainly, no-one could take a poke at him [John Curtin] on "practising and preaching" austerity. He and Mrs Curtin … both eat, dress and live with the utmost simplicity'.
'Prime Minister', Sunday Telegraph, 6/9/1942
