Auckland Sunday School Union,

October 30th, 1906.

Messrs Partridge & Co,
Queen St.


On behalf of the Auckland S.S. Union I would convey to you its best thanks for your kindness in inviting our Country delegates to visit the Lindauer Art Gallery. From the remarks made I am sure that this invitation was very much appreciated by our country visitors. Speaking for myself, though I have resided in Auckland for over 20 years it is my first visit and I very much regret not having been before. I must say that I was very much surprised at the high class character of the paintings; a collection like Mr Lindauer's collection of Maori portraits is well worthy of a place on the walls of our Art Gallery.

Thanking you again for your courtesy and kindness.

Believe me Gentlemen,
Yours very truly,

H.J. le Bailly
