Dear McLean

I am willing to join such a Society as this - or if you choose any other you like - only let us start it and ventilate the matter.

I would get hold of a good lot of votes at first were I in your place and then print some such thing as I enclose and send it round with a list of subscribers on a separate sheet - Every agriculturist you think of should be asked to subscribe and the letter should be signed by you - Tiffen*, Gollan Rhodes Alexander, Ormond Chambers, P. Russell, H. Russell, Gordon Tuke - Grant - Carlyon (*Lowry but he's away) Williams - Richardson E. N. Smith - myself* *Powdrell *Heslop - *Brigham - etc.etc. Should be first got to agree to put their names down. It must go on then.

* means I know will join.
Truly yours
G. S. Whitmore
Happy new year - I go tomorrow not today to Peha Peha. G. S. W.
