After four wonderful days on Southern Yorke Peninsula he set out for Adelaide on August 11th, with two bags of mail and a simple little message. This was a note prepared by himself, and weighted and dropped from his plane. As he passed over the little school house at Koolywurtie he released the parcel, and flew on. The message read – “To my old school and its scholars. I sincerely hope that this little message from the air will bring to you all the very best of luck.” It was received with delights, and for many years was framed on the wall of the little school room. A fitting reminder that there are no barriers to fame if the will and determination are of the quality that produces a Harry Butler.
He reached Enfield 27 minutes after leaving the ground at Minlaton. The reception party waiting to welcome him included the governor, Sir Henry Galway; the Military Commandant, Brig-General Antill; the Chief Justice, Sir George Murray; Mr Justice Buchanan, and the Mayor of Unley, Mr W.H Langham. They were naturally watching the western sky for the plane’s approach, but Harry Butler was always the perfect showman – he suddenly appeared from nowhere at a very great height and threw the Red Devil into a terrifying nose dive from which it seemed impossible to recover. But a few short metres from the ground he broke out of it and screamed back into the air looping the loop and twisting across the sky. Then he landed quickly and handed over the mail bags and so closed the door on what must have been for him a magnificently satisfying few days.
