APPRECIATION OF THE DOMINIONS
An esteemed correspondent received tin's i mail a ’titer from a friend in Glasgow, ■ who is a practising solicitor in that, city. 1 It serves to shew the thoroughness of the j appreciation by .the people of the Mother : Lend of the help she is receiving from these , oversea Dominions: — | “While I am writing to a colonist, 1 : would like to refer to the gioat services I which are being performed by New Zealand j for the Mother Country. Meeting as I do ■ so many commercial and professional men, '• and hearing on all sides the same opinion expressed, I may tell you that tli« splendid i action of the colonies has created a spirit ; of affection for them among the people of i this country which is almost beyend conevp- j lion. I here is a wave of enthusiasm here , for ihe colonists, and a feeling of affection for them which goes to prove ihe strong and lasting ti*a which bind them to the Mother Country. Wo all litre feel a deep sense of gratitude and inspiration at the exhibition of affection for Britain ehown by ! our colonists, the if moial support and their j splendid practical assistance in men, money, . and mater;*!. The Germans said that we could not colonise, and this is the answer ! which the colonists have made. There is no ! doubt that tho Allies will come out on top | at the end, which may yet be a long way , off. Wo feel here that we are not fighting for gain in money or territory, but that the war thrust on us must be brought to a satisfactory conclusion, so that at last the military arrogance of Germany may be for ever vanquished and the human policy of 'Live and let live’ be established. . . . These lemarks may in soma small way represent to | New Zealanders the feelings of love and gratitude whi.rh are held for them by tho J people of this country.—l am, etc., j H.S.G.”
