Mr. CURRIE:

I wish to endorse every word that has been spoken in favour of Colonel Verret. I had occasion to have dealings with the Post Office Department before the war and always found him competent and courteous. Throughout the

war 'he was a brother officer of mine, and I cannot speak too highly of him, and I think it would be a matter of very deep regret to any one who knows him to think for one moment that any reorganization could be achieved in the post office whereby he would be degraded and forced out of his position.
