20th February, 1891.
To Mr. D. Orme,Mill Employees' Society, Timaru.
Dear Sir,—We beg to acknowledge receipt of yours of 17th inst.
As we started eight hours on the 1st January, and were forced to stop on account of the extra expense we were put over our neighbours, and as we told our employees, that when other millers start eight hours we will again revert to that practice; we do not wish to be mixed up in any way with meetings on the subject.
