The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

President McKinley

President McKinley.

At the special invitation of Mr. Wilson, Secretary to the Department of Agriculture, I had the distinguished honour of being presented to the President of the United States of America. Mr. McKinley was gracious enough to extend to me a warm welcome, as the representative of a British colony. He expressed the hope that the result of my visit would lead to a more extended trade between the United States and New Zealand, and added that the colony has shown great enterprise in sending a Trade Commissioner round the world to disseminate and gather useful and valuable information.
