Before the contract for the present Nelligen-Brooman land service expires, consideration will be given the question of inviting alternative tenders for motor launch service between Nelligen and Shallow Crossing; thence by land service to Brooman, and most probably tenders will be invited in this manner. I would point out that the existing contract expires on 31st December, 1921, and that in connection with the conveyance of mails from 1st January, 1922, it has been decided to invite tenders as follows: (a) Nelligen, Currowan and Brooman, twice weekly (as at present); or (b) Nelligen, Currowan and Brooman, twice weekly, and Shallow Crossing and Brooman, once weekly, by spring vehicle; and (c) Nelligen and Shallow Crossing by river, once weekly. I shall be glad if you will kindly advise Messrs. Veitch & Co., Saw Mills, Shallow Crossing, and Mr. Edmund McCauley, Mulwhy, Nelligen, accordingly, and that the matter will be further considered upon receipt of tenders,”
