Members of the Senate and of the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia,

I desire to express to you, on behalf of Queen Mary, myself, and the other members of the Royal Family, the deep appreciation with which we have received your kind message of sympathy on the death of my dear father. I thank you sincerely for your congratulations to me on my Accession to the Throne, and I share with you the hope that the years to come may bring peace and prosperity to us all. (Sgd.) Edward R..I. 19th March, 1936.
