Notes
In 1922 Allen began the first of 25 volumes of a diary to improve what he regarded as his poor English expression. The diaries are held by the National Library of Australia. The C.W. Allen collection at the CDHS is a photocopy of Volume 5 of his diaries covering the period 19 July 1926 to 1 July 1928.
