I return here with the information of Birth, with the child only names. As the child was stillborn, it will be necessary to send the Information of Death Form, that accompanied this Information of Birth. On the 24th January, I forwarded further information of Birth and Death, concerning a still born child born at Elliott. This was also unnamed. If a name is required I would suggest that you name it Thomas. It was the child of Tommy Midjanu and Ruby Djonali.
