H.E. Partridge Esq
Albert Street

Dear Sir,

I am instructed by the President to forward to you copies of letters to and from Captain Halsey, which were sent and received in connection with the gift of the photograph of Tamati WakaNene, which in accordance with your wishes and through Miss O'Neill, the Victoria League presented to the New Zealand while she was in Auckland.

I am desired to thank you very much for the opportunity you gave the Victoria League of doing some little thing to keep its memory green in the minds of Captain Halsey and his men.

Yours faithfully,
Edith M Statham
General Secretary.

I am further directed to say that we sent typewritten copies of these letters to both "Star" and "Herald" but the reports published were most unsatisfactory so Mr Andersen wanted you to see the original letters.
