"By 1909 Les and Frank were in Melbourne in public service jobs, boarding there with a widowed aunt, Mary Moulton. Bob was about to take up his scholarship in one of Melbourne's public schools. Sometime in 1909 the parents decided that the family's changing circumstances required new arrangements: Kate would move to Melbourne and establish there a family home, while James would for the time being somehow keep his business interests going in Jeparit."
