Key West, USA, October 24, 2001
Dear Mr Ruddock,
Thank you for your letter of October 4. With this you returned my letter of August 23 and visa application and blank cheque; you pointed out that -- notwithstanding that I had enclosed a blank cheque in favour of the Australian Ministry of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs -- the fees payable under the Migration Regulations had not been paid.
To comply with your request, I am therefore now fulfilling the legal requirements of the Migration Act 1958 as requested by your letter of October 4, by enclosing a WestPac bank draft in the sum of A$60 being the temporary visa application charge required. I am also enclosing again my letter of August 23 and the properly completed visa application form. As there are no Australian missions on or near this U.S. island, I trust you will allow me to mail the papers directly back to your ministry.
My letter to Senator Patterson was written before I received your letter.
