An Appreciation

An Appreciation.

From Mr. R. E. Hunter, President, Northern Racing Pigeon Club, Auckland, to Mr. G. H. Mackley General Manager of Railways, Wellington.

At the conclusion of our racing season for the current year we would like to express our appreciation of the extreme courtesy and consideration which have been extended to us at all times by the officers of your Department. In return for our birds being available for use by the Government whenever required we are allowed, as you know, material freight concessions. Nevertheless, if we were one of the Department's largest and most profitable customers we could not receive better treatment than is the case. During the year we have held some thirty races from various stations between Te Kuiti and Oamaru, besides scores of training flights between Papakura and Ohakune, and on no oceasion did we have cause for other than extreme satisfaction.

We should be indeed pleased if, after noting this letter, you could cause it to be published in the “Railways Magazine” so that the individual officers at the various stations may know that we appreciate their courtesy and efficiency.
