An Appreciation

An Appreciation.

From His Worship the Mayor of Whangarei, Mr. W. Jones, to Mr. G. H. Mackley, General Manager of Railways:

“Recently, my good lady, the Mayoress, travelled from Whangarei to Dunedin. After boarding the Auckland express at Whangarei it was found that her purse and railway tickets for the entire journey had been left in the car in which she had motored to the Whangarei Station.

“My Town Clerk has informed me that contact was immediately made with the Stationmaster at Waiotira on arrival, and I would like to express to you my appreciation and thanks for the assistance given my wife by your officers.

“The officers whom I specially wish to mention are the Stationmasters at Waiotira, Maungaturoto and Helensiville, and also Mr. Martin attached to Whangarei Station Staff.

“I did appreciate all their kindness, courtesy and assistance to the Mayoress and it is my privilege and duty to tell you so.

“The tickets were uplifted at the Auckland Station on the following day.”
