Mr L. J. Hagan
I read with interest the decision of your County to issue a booklet commemorating the 50th year of establishment. I should esteem it a favour if you will please post me a copy & I will gladly pay for same.
Though never a resident, our next door neighbour at Awahuri, Mr. G. Lucas was a Pohangina Pioneer & subsequently became a councillor. W. Lucas of Raumai is a son who could no doubt furnish some interesting particulars, as could also Mrs. Palmer Senr, of the early days.
A photograph of a raging bush fire taken by a Mr Wildbore, was published in several papers of that time. Probably you could obtain a copy from a son. It was considered exceptionally fine.
