NATIONAL PATRIOTIC FUND
A splendid note of allegiance to the British Crown and appreciation of the privileges British citizens enjoy accompanied a gift of £100 received recently by the National Patriotic Fund Board from J. K. Natali, of Waimiha, South Auckland. Mr. Natali is president of the New Zealand Indian Association, but.he made it clear in his letter that he made his contribution in his private capacity.
His letter reads: "As an Indian who has settled in this country for the last twenty yearSj who enjoys the benefits of the freedom and liberty under the British Constitution; who is proud of being a British Indian subject; who is conscious Of the privileges enjoyed by a full citizenship in this country, and at the same time realising that the privileges also must carry the responsibilities of a citizen, I herewith enclose my cheque for £ 100 towards the Patriotic Fund."
