Sir FREDERICK BORDEN.

I am not aware that there is to be any such assemblage of troops at Petawawa during the summer, but there will probably be a larger number there than last year. So far as the visit of Sir John French is concerned, I understand that it is expected he will visit Canada unofficially, or semi-officially, during the present year with the view of seeing as much as he can of the Canadian militia. And I may add that every facility will be afforded him to meet as many officers, and see as much of the militia in camp, and otherwise, as possible, as we are extremely glad to have such a distinguished officer visit this country: and I think it will be in the interests of the militia that we should give him every possible opportunity to see our Can-dian militia.
