FIRE MOTOR REEL
! A|R(RIVAL OF THE! CHASSIS,
Mr 'Ai. Burns, Superintendemt of the Thames Fire Brigade 1, has received the following communication from Messrs Dexter and Orozier, with whom was placed the order for supply of fire motor reel, and as thei public, who generously subscribed, are interested in the matter, the details given should afford satisfaction. The letter proceeds:— > "We have your favour of the 7th inst. regarding a Slingsby Patent steel back ladder. I might say I have inspected this ladder and am of the opinion that it is rather heavy. We 1 havel bean informed from our Christchurch 'branch, that they have a folding ladder which was imported with a- chassis" for the Invercargill Fire Brigade, but which they did not take. I have sent to Christchurch asking them to forward us particulars of this ladder, and will send same on vo you as sooai as we receive them. I am of opinion that it would be more liandv for your use and easieir to carry than the Slingsby. However, i* it does not meet, with your approval, I have no doubt we can make provision to carry the Slingsby ladder.
":Rlega.rding the Chassis, at" last it has arrived. It came by the "Zealandio" from London ; it is not unloaded yet', but we expect it up within a day or two. The 'body is all finished 1, and as soon as we receive the chassis, •they can go ahead with the fitting of guards and painting. "I am putting through an order for four Targe sized minimax for you, and we will try and make provision to carry them to the best advantage.
