There was a large gathering of Chinese, and also many European friends of ihe mission. In the absence of the Bishop of Wellington, who was away from Wellington, Archdean Johnson presided. The Revs. Canon Watson, F. B. Redgrave, and H. E. K. Fry extended the best wishes of the mission committoe to Mr. Wong. On behalf of the Chinese residents speeches of welcome were made to the new missioner by Mr. Jackson (the Acting-Chinese. Consul), Mrs. Sue Shen Hing, and Messrs. Matthew Shum, Lucy Soo, aud Joe Bing hum. High appreciation was expressed at the way in which a few of the Chinese Christians had carried on the services at the mission since the death of the last missioner, the Rev. N. Mackenzie.
