Quong Tart Scones

Sir,—In the article about Quong Tart ("Herald," December 18) no mention was made of the famous Quong Tart scones which replaced the biscuits and soon became a feature of his tea-shops, and for which I was fortunate enough to be given the recipe.

It became quite the thing to visit one of his establishments for a cup of tea and scone, which still could be had for three- pence!

Sir,—I remember, as a girl, having morning tea at Quong Tart's tea-rooms in King Street. Accompanying the tea were the most delicious hot scones—more like teacakes—simply dripping with butter. J.B.S. Sydney.
