Hon. Minister of Railways,
On behalf of the Provincial Executive, and the eleven branches of the Farmers' Union of the West Coast, I have been requested to ask you to convey to Mr. H. Chapman, District Traffic Manager, Christchurch, and Mr. Pawson, Business Agent, their thans for many kindnesses shown to the West Coast Farmer Excursionists during their trip to Canterbury and that the Railway Board be congratulated on their skilful inauguration of this very fine scheme, providing as it does both pleasure and education for those availing themselves of it. I feel sure that next year larger crowds will avail themselves of this fine opportunity of visiting Canterbury.
