to act on behalf of the Province. If you still are unable, will you let me know whom you would recommend me to appoint.

I was at Akitio last week. Lots of feed - the sheep looking well - but the losses on my run as great as ever. I believe you had a capital lambing, owing to the rams having got amongst the ewes before the proper time.

Yours faithfully
I. E. Featherston
