Dear Irving,—I regret very much that you are not as well known in New South Wales as you are in New Zealand, as I think you should receive the support of all those who have the welfare of our growing youth at heart.
Your cheerful disposition and firmly settled opinions have, to my certain knowledge, caused your advice to be asked and acted upon by many a young New Zealander, and I know of no one better qualified to pilot a company through such a trip as you purpose to take than yourself.
Wishing you every success, I remain, yours sincerely,
W. A. Gibb,Manager National Insurance Co.
M. M. Irving,Esq., Sydney.
