"I um grateful for the Invitation

During the pnst twelve months the

to the merchant murine hnve been
necessary to supply the demunds for
greater transportation facilities, und
on all sides there hus been heullhy
uud  well sustained  progress.
"Kor thc yeur 11)12 there is a certainty of an increased impetus along
uli liti's that muke lor natural advancement, und wc mny look for a
