Letter from J. Hogan to Robert Salter, dated 16 February 1939. The letter contains a landing permit for Robert Salter's fiancée Miss I. Rosner. Robert Salter migrated to Australia from Austria, fleeing Vienna just before the German annexation of Austria in 1938.

Robert had applied for residency in Australia 5 months before leaving Vienna but found when he arrived in Brisbane that his application for residency had been rejected. With the help of William Maloney, a federal Member of Parliament who befriended him, Robert was finally able to obtain permits for himself, his parents, his fiancee Ida and his friend who had accompanied him on the journey.
