BOY SCOUTS IN OKAIN S.

TO THE EDITOR,

Sir,—May I ask you to allow me, through, your columns, to address a word of thanks to the many people of Okain's who were so kind to the Boy Scouts during their sojourn there It makes all the difference how one is .received on such an occasion, and I may say quite truly that I have never pitobed oamp in a more hospitable spot Gifts ranging from conger eels to onions were sent to the store tent for the hoys, and they felt not "at all like strangers in a strange place, but found themselves amongst friends. They all wanted to stay on indefinitely. We ■ are wondering —

(1) Whether Jill has still an even temper ? (2) Whether Dr Thacker has found the turnip ? (3) Whether a new plan of attack has been yet evolved? (4) Whether maoy people have recovered from the effects of Koko Island and of the band ? (5) Whether there is another such bay in the world?

Thanking all concerned for the interest they tcok in us—Yours, etc.,

N. E. HAWDON, Scoutmaster, P.3.—The boys say the Okain's people are O.K.
