HIS EXCELLENCY'S APPRE OIATIQN OF GENEROUS RESPONSE.
Hie Excellency the Governor for wards us the following letter of appreciation for the generous response received from our district to his appeal on behalf of the New Zealand Etospital ship:—
To the Editor, "Akaroa Mail," Dear Sir,—
"I deeire to express my deep appreciation to all who have so generously responded to my appeal to equip the Hospital Ship « Maheno." I have personally given my undivided attention to see that, while having due regard to economy, she ehould leave these shores, so far as it is possible, lacking nothing. My only regret is that I have not been able to personally thank each of the many donors, but hope they will allow me through the medium of this letter to say how greatly I have been touched by the way in which tLey have assisted me. n* W L U had b een Possible for the Mabeno , ' to visit the various ports of the Dominion, so that everybody might have had an opportunity of seeing her, but I am convinced that all will agree with me that it would have been inadvisable to delay tbe ship's departure. Under existing arrange ments, it j 8 anticipated that the Mabeno will return to New Zealand in about six monthe , time; bringing as many as she can comfortably accom raodate of those whose wounds wiil prevent their returning to (he front, for ifc is highly essential that these men Bhoulfl make the return journey under the most favourable conditions possible."
