You ask me to ponder over the opportunity, and you repeat the advion recently given by Mr W. Hughes, the Prime Ministor, viz., that an increase of population is absolutely essential for the salvation of the Empire. I am quite in accord with that quotation. I am not surprised at your sex assuming the aggressive. If men are backward then the exigency of the question warrants the turning of the tables by the ladies proposing to men. You state that if I cannot accept your offer of matrimony could I mention the names of eligible single men — even widowers might do, so that you could canvass them for a life-long partership. Please note that I am not a matri- monial agent, and I have no wish to enter the profession ; but I might, with much respect and great esteem, mention the following gentlemen of high standing and eligibility...
