THE SELWYN CENTENARY.
(To the Editor,),.-.• Sir, —Would you kindly allow us to draw attention through the medium, of your- valuable paper to -the advertisement re. the Selwyn. Centenary, appearing in your issue? Whilst St. Paul's -commemoration cannot claim to 'be diocesan, we feel that, as'this parish was £0 intimately connected-with Bishop Selwyn, it is our privilege' cordially to invite all pioneers ,and'early colonists of all denominations who were in any -way acquainted with, the great 'Bishop of New Zealand to join ue in celebrating the contenary of his birth by attending the services and the social re-union to be held on Thursday, 29th inst., and the only practical way of reaching a large number is through jthe daily Press. The Bishop of Waiapu has kindly consented to preach at the morning's service, and the Bishop of Auckland at the evening one. We would esteem it a favour if those who accept this invitation would kindly let us know as early as convenient co thart- adequate arrangements may be made. Hoping that many of our early settlers in town and country will accept this invitation, and thanking you in anticipation.—We are, etc., ' (Sgd.) E. MITCHELSON J. J. CRAIG E. D. ASHTON W. S. WHITLEY Wardens CECIL A. B. WATSON, Vicar.
