That this Synod expresses regret that illness has prevented attendance at this session by the Right Reverend T.E. Jones, Bishop of Willochra, and acknowledges that it has been much the poorer for the lack of his contribution to its fellowship and debate.

Synod warmly appreciates the very great contribution made by Bishop Jones in the wider work of the Church in Australia in twenty-three years’ leadership of the Bush Church Aid Society, notably in the inauguration of the Flying Medical Services. It gives thanks for his achievements in the strengthening of the Diocese of Willochra, and, on the eve of his retirement from that See, sends to the Bishop its warm greetings and prayerful good wishes.

(The Reverend G.A. Pearson, 24.9.69)
