From Mr. A. C. Brown, Secretary of the Auckland Farmers’ Freezing Company, Ltd., to the North Island Divisional Superintendent: —

The past season's operations in regard to the meat and dairy produce export industry may now be regarded as completed. Before entering upon the new season, we would like to express our appreciation of the efficient manner in which the live stock, meat and dairy produce, consigned to and from the Company's various works has been handled by your Department, and of the courtesy which has always been received from all sections of the service.

Mr. Martin Crowne, of Ghuznee Street, Wellington, acknowledges the courtesy and civility of the guards and other train men on the Hutt line, in the following appreciative letter to the District Traffic Manager, Wellington.

I have been using the trains on the Hutt section of your railways for some time, in connection with the Bitumus Factory at Pitcaithlys, and I am in admiration of the courtesy and civility of the guards and others with whom I came in contact.

I have travelled much in other countries, but I have never experienced such civility and attention as in New Zealand. I congratulate you on having such servants ministering to the needs of the travelling public. They, certainly, are doing their part to make the Railways popular, and to build and maintain for them a good reputation.

We all trust that the very pleasant feelings at present existing between our two bodies will continue.
