Governor-General's Astonishment

Governor-General's Astonishment.

Those who had accepted the offer were very wise and very lucky, for they had every kind of help and encouragement to make themselves competent, resourceful, self-reliant young farmers. His Excellency emphatically declared his belief—based on careful observation—that this country would continue to furnish a good living for an increasing number of efficient farmers.
