LORD BLEDISLOE'S INTEREST
The Dominion Secretary of the New Zealand Institute of Horticulture, Mr. G. S. Nicoll, recently • forwarded the following letter to his Excellency the Governor-General (Lord Bledisloe):—
"I am directed to convey the following remit which was carried at the recent conference of the institute held at Dunedin: "That the institute expresses its appreciation to his Excellency the Governor-General, , Lord B'ledisloe, for his splendid services towards the advancement of- horticulture and forestry during his term of office. At the same.time I was requested to express the appreciation of the conference of the very great assistance his Excellency has rendered to horticulture during'his'.stay in New Zealand, both practically and by means of addresses delivered from time to time throughoutl the Dominion. Whilst.i realising that the departure, of their i Excellencies is inevitable, . horticulturists, together with the people of New Zealand generally, deeply l'egret this necessity. At the same time it is appreciated that New Zealand's loss will represent, a gain to some other part of the Empire. Eeference was also made to their Excellencies' outstanding interest in native flora which culminated in the award of the Loder Cup for 1934. The institute trusts that health and happiness will be theirs wherever they may be domiciled in the future." The jfollowing reply was received from his Excellency:— "I will not attempt to disguise the fact that the terms of the remit which was carried at the recent conference of the New Zealand Institute of Horticulture have given me much more than ordinary pleasure, because horticulture and forestry are subjects which have always been near to my heart. I should therefore be obliged if you would convey to the institute my warmly-appreciative acknowledgments of its generous references to my endeavours to support and encourage during my -sojourn in New Zealand the vigorous enterprise which has consistently marked the activities of the institute in its watchful concern for the welfare of the Dominion in these two extremely important branches of its national life. I thank the institute also for its expressions of loyal and friendly good will and its kind wishes to her Excellency and myself on our impending departure from New Zealand.—Yours sincerely, Bledisloe." :
