OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by corres pondents.) THANKS. To the Editor of "The Standard." Sir,-Will you permit me to gratefully thank the members of the Frankston Fire Brigade, and all those who by their services or patronage assisted them to make a success of the function held recently on behalf of my children and myself. One does not like the idea of accepting a?sistance in the battle of life, but the loss of a bread-winner is-apart from the personal loss-in our case too great for words. The assistance given us was so cheerfully and l'ess than human did we not accept it in the spirit it was given and regard it as a token of esteem in which a fond father and a loving husband was held by those who knew him best. I cannot adequately convey my ap preciation of the efforts of those I desire to thank. I pray the Great Giver of all Good will recompense each one abundantly for the kind assistance rendered to me in my need. Yours gr...
