[15 Nov. 1953]

Dear Leo:

Would you convey to the Board on behalf of my wife and myself our deepest appreciation for the evening of the 9th of November. From the first handshake to the last, the program was marked by the utmost cordiality and affection. We shall never forget the dinner; the Chairman's remarks; the speeches of Norrie Frye and Leonard Brockington; the toast and the ringing response to my address; the floral presentation to Vi by Ethel Bennett; the laughter and comments, and the final 'Jolly good fellows' sung miraculously in key, were all expressions that warmed our hearts. Long live Victoria, and our love to everyone again.

Vi and Ned Pratt
