British Columbia Board of Trade, Board of Trade Buildings,

My Dear Sir,—

Victoria, B.C.,

The members of the British Columbia Board of Trade, in quarterly general meeting assembled this afternoon, were agreeably entertained and much enlightened by your very able representation of the natural resources of New Zealand and development of same.

Your remarks upon the gum and hemp industries were a revelation, but of particular interest to this Board was your reference to New Zealand as a market for British Columbia lumber and fish. In other lines, too, there appears a good market for the products of this province. New Zealand butter is not unknown here, and shipments of Australasian frozen meat have been received.

At the conclusion of your address this Board unanimously adopted a very hearty vote of thanks, which I have now much pleasure m tendering you.

Trusting that your voyage to New Zealand will be a very pleasant one, and that we may have the pleasure of seeing you again,

I am, &c.,

G. A. Kirk

, President.

John Holmes

, Esq., Victoria, B.C.
