I hope that before Parliament is prorogued I may be able to congratulate you on the plans for the first section having been approved of. I have heard nothing, .however, of their having been received down here yet.

I rather fancy she will have a long job there. The sum of £1,625,000 which is on the loan es!in ates for railways in the y^»*li&lt...
