Sir,—Our Secretary's report of a Committee meeting which appeared m your paper on the 22nd inst, owing possibly to his not correotly hearing exactly what was said, was somewhat garbled and by no means fair to Mr Hodgkins, who very rightly (as I said at the meeting) objected to our Secretary not having adhered to certain instructions minuted by the Committee, and to his having adopted a course m opposition to such. In defence of his, action tho Secretary made utterance to the effect that it was usual for him m the past to aot without instructions from the Committee, when I interposed, by way of correctiog such a misleading statement, and said that, although the Committee certainly had allowed our Secretary for various reasons a, great deal of latitude, I was quite certain that during the past 10 or 12 years that I have been a member of the Committee any work of importance had always been first authorised by the Committee.—£ am, Pt|L-_,* v .. Percy H. Cox. Chairman of Committee. Ashburton, June 24th, 1905.
