THE WOMEN'S GIFT TO THE DUCHESS. PRESENTATION CEREMONY.
The Duchess of Cornwall received at Government House this morning a deputation on behalf of the women of Wellington, who desired her acceptance of a gift taking the form of the model of a carved Maori house. The deputation consisted of Lady Stout, Mrs. H. D. Bell, Mrs. Wallis (wife of the Bishop of Wellington), and Mrs. T. M. Wilford. The ceremony took place in the reception-room, and the ladies composing the deputation having been presented to the Duchess by the Countess of Ranfurly, Mrs. Bell, as President of the Women's Committee, asked Her Royal Highness to accept the gift on behalf of the women of Wellington. She explained that the present itself was not yet finished, but the Countess of Ranfurly had allowed a model that she possessed to be used for the occasion, and permission was asked to forward the gift to England when completed. "It is very nice, and it is very kind of you," remarked the Duchess and then, examining the model present, she asked, "Will it be like this?" Mrs. Bell replied that it would be almost a facsimile, and that it would stand upon a carved table. "Will you express to the other ladies my great thanks," said the Duchess, who then talked pleasantly for a few moments, shook hands again with, the ladies present, and the ceremony ended.
