Wynyard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 4 February 1891
Wyiiyard Xotcs. ? -^ — ? — . We had a glorious day's mfn ou Saturday for the potatoes, which was gladly welcomed. From all sides 1 . hear that . tho crops are. ^ looking vory well, and likely to result In good yields. There is oiio important matter connected with our drainage which I should like to bring under the notice of the lloiid Trust at once, with a view of having tho matter fixed up before next winter.

Tlio result is that in winter time a great deal of the land in the locality is under water and the residonti are put to a great deal of inconvenience and loss in consequence. Some time ago an attempt was made to continue tho present drnln in Dodgin-street to the river. Tho work of excavation was gone on with fo...
