Mr. McJones decided to share the note with a Wynnum community group on Facebook, hoping he could be reunited with his admirer.

“So if one of you ladies went to Wondall Heights State School and was in grade three in 1976 and wrote this lovely letter,” he wrote.

“I’m still single and available.”

Mr. McJones said ABC Radio Brisbane he initially shared the letter on Facebook to laugh.

He admitted that he had no idea who the author might be, since the only woman he loved at that age was his mother.

“I would have no idea who it was, because when I was that old I was only concerned with BMX and sports,” said McJones.

“I want to apologize to the sender for never acknowledging the letter, because I was shy when I was young.

“Knowing my luck, she’s probably married a dozen kids.”
