Correspondence. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905
Correspondence. . (TO $HE EDITOR.) . Sir,— In your contemporary's re port to-day of the Hospital Sunday movement, I see that in answer to a question, the Secretary stated he had no renlv from the Rechftbitos. I have been instructed by the Lodge to explain the reason, which is that their letter was received the day after our meeting sight, and the meeting, at which the letter said aU arrangements were to be made took place a week before our next meet ing,' so it was considered at (he meeting useless to appoint delegates, and unnecessary to reply. I am also instructed to state that our Lodge intend to be represented in the pro cession. Thanking you in anticipation,-— i I am, GEO. GBOSE, Acting Secretary, I. O. Reohabites. Corowa, October IS.
