His Excellency the Governor
His Excellency the Governor, the Earl of Glasgow, G.C.M.G., having completed his term of service in New Zealand, left the Colony on the 6th of February, 1897, departing from the Queen's Wharf, Wellington, by the s.s. “Talune” for Sydney, New South Wales, on his way to England. A vast concourse of people thronged the wharves and steamers to bid adieu to one of the most popular Governors that the Colony has ever had. Lord and Lady Glasgow and family stood on the steamer's bridge, and as the vessel swept by the end of the wharf they waved their farewells 'midst the enthusiastic cheering of the military escort and citizens assembled.
