From Mr. J. F. Laing, Greymouth, to the General Manager of Railways, Wellington:—

I wish to convey to the Station-master, Ohakune Junction, my heartiest thanks for recovering a travelling rug I left in the Auckland Express recently. As this rug was a present to me I was very pleased to recover it again and regret any inconvenience which my loss occasioned the Department. The action on the part of the stationmaster and his men will ever be remembered by me.

From the Secretary, The Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Society, Dunedin, too Mr. J. Boswell, Goods Agent, Dunedin:—

I desire on behalf of the Committee to express their thanks and appreciation for the satisfactory manner in which all stock was handled at our recent Summer Show. We have received no complaints from exhibitors, many of them expressing themselves as well satisfied with the attention they received, especially in the prompt despatch that was given to all stock after their arrival in Dunedin.

From Mrs. M. Biggins, Dallington, Christchurch, to the General Manager of Railways, Wellington.

Have just completed a tour of North and South Island and must write and tell you how pleased we were with the cleanliness of Ashbur-ton station. The waiting room was one of the cleanest we have ever been in. We were much impressed with the beautiful garden, in fact cannot speak too highly of everything connected with Ashburton railway station. It reflects great credit on the Station-master and staff.

From the Secretary, “Waikato Times” Sports Club, Hamilton, to the Station-master, Hamilton:—

It again falls on me to express the appreciation of my committee for the help and assistance rendered our picnic by your staff. May I also add my own personal thanks to you all for the help, advice and valuable assistance given me in organising the trip.

I will look forward with confidence and pleasure at some future date to again securing such courteous treatment.

From the President, the South Island Fruit and Produce Brokers’ Association, to the Stationmaster, Bluff:—

Mr. Mclndoe, the Government Orchardist Instructor, who inspected a consignment of bananas on behalf of the Government and the Brokers’ Association, advised the writer that yourself and staff did absolutely everything possible to facilitate the handling of the fruit, and to protect the merchants against any probable loss by delay and deterioration.

On behalf of the South Island Fruit Brokers' Association, and the members interested, I wish most sincerely to thank you for the very efficient manner, the kind courtesy, and the very capable services that each and everyone, from your good self, to the humblest porter, rendered our Association. It is such service as this that will eventually enable the Railway to overcome its difficulties.
