CANADA’S INCREASED FOOD SUPPLY

MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION FROM THE KING

The following message has been sent by H. M. the King to the Governor-General of Canada: –

“I learn with deep gratification of the effective steps taken in the Dominion of Canada towards providing those increased supplies of food which are absolutely essential to the defeat of the enemy’s devices, and to a speedy and successful termination of the war. I have no doubt that the self-sacrifice displayed on the battlefields of France by my heroic Canadian troops will find its counter-part in the efforts of those who at home in the dominion are devoting themselves to this work. All those thus loyally engaged contribute an important measure towards assuring victory.”
