Mr. J.S. Wilson, of New Plymouth, who recently lost a roll of bank notes, which was found by a member of the New Plymouth railway staff and subsequently returned to him, writes to the Stationmaster, New Plymouth, in the following appreciative terms of the “honest people on the railway”:-

On the night of the 26th September I had the misfortune to lose a roll of bank notes and postal notes amounting to £28 16s. This roll was picked up by one of your staff in the Main Street and returned to me the following morning by Mr. Luders of the New Plymouth staff. I was lucky my roll was picked up by an honest man, and one of your staff. There are a few honest people in the country yet, and you have them on the railway. I thought I would pen you these few lines to let you know how I appreciate Mr. Luders’ honesty.

From the Hon. Secretary, Manawatu Ladies’ Hockey Association, Palmerston North, to the General Manager of Railways, Wellington:-

On the return of our team who visited Invercargill for the Championship Tournament, the manageress expressed her great pleasure and satisfaction with the kind manner in which your service attended to the requirements of the party. They received every consideration from your staff at all times, and the civility and attention called for special mention. The staff at Palmerston North station and your local agent, Mr. P. S. Larcomb, went to a great deal of trouble on our behalf, and we wish to extend to them, and all your servants right through, our very best thanks.

From the Manager, Dalgety and Company, Wanganui, to Mr. Gilmore, Transport Office, Ohakune:-

We would like to place on record our appreciation of the manner in which our request for sheep wagons to meet the heavy demands of purchasers at our recent Raetihi Ewe Fair, was granted.

We are more than pleased at the special efforts displayed by you and the results achieved in satisfying our demands on that occasion.

All stock was moved with the utmost despatch, and it is very gratifying to us to be able to express our clients’ and our own utmost satisfaction at the results achieved.

From the Secretary, New Zealand Fruit Export Control Board, Wellington, to the General Manager of Railways, Wellington:-

I have been instructed to convey to you my Board's appreciation of the services rendered by you and your staff during the fruit season which has just terminated. Although little inconveniences do arise during the busy time, these do not mar my Board's appreciation of the efficiency of the New Zealand Railways in transporting a record export crop from Hastings and the Wairarapa Districts to Wellington without any undue delay at any time.
