Mr G. W. Thomas, Hon. Sec. of the Akaroa Patriotic Fund received the following letter in acknowledgement of the £200 sent up from the Peninsula as the amount raised on Tricolour Day.
"I have not been able to find a minute up till now to send you a letter of congratulation on the successful result of- your "Day" for France.
I am glad you obtained such a price for the flag, as it will make it more valuable to the holder. Our French friends will also be very glad to know what value is attached here to their Tricolour and such an event as occurred last Friday will tend to further cement the bonds of friendship between our two Nations.
