The offer was made in the house; I have to buy it here; I do not see the Postmaster General outside the house and I do not see him in it all the time. I do not refuse that offer; I accept it and I am sorry the Postmaster General is not here to get the money. There are two pages present and he can get the money right away. Moreover, the hon. member for L'Assomption-Montcalm (Mr. Seguin) who is a notary has agreed to prepare the deed without cost. He will be here to-night and if the Postmaster General accepts, and not only accepts, but is true to his word, is straight enough to sell his island for $25, the hon. member for L'Assomption-Montcalm will sign the deed. If not, I will
sue the Postmaster General for completion of the deed. I regret very much there are slackers who do not appear in the house when questions of such importance are being discussed, and I hope before long we will see him coming here accepting the money which I have shown to the whole committee.
