Abstract

In "Memories of the Golden Years of Childhood" I wrote in the Introduction: "My childhood ended when we left Ballarat soon after my father died in 1932. He left us penniless even after the house and his practise had been sold." I have written about the sweetness of life, but now comes the hard task of trying to describe life's anguish in my girlhood years.
