My Dear Sir,—I am very glad to be able to pay you the compliment, and that no empty one, that I know of none of my acquaintance with the practical business ability so fitted to be trusted with the responsibilities of the trip you propose as yourself.
Your companions will be very fortunate in having your society. You can refer to me in any way you like, having known you for some eight years.
With kind regards, I am, yours truly,
Ernest W. Moon, J.P.,Consul-General in Australasia, Republic of Costa Rica, Central America.
M. M. Irving,Esq., Sydney.
