"it is with profound personal regret
that I am giving up the office of Secretary
of State for the Colonies which 1 have been
privileged to hold for the past twenty
months. During that time, through my
work ;n the Colonial Office and my
visits overseas, I have come vividly to
appreciate the magnitude of the problems
with which the peoples of territories asso.
ciated with this office are everywhere faced
today. I have also been deeply impressed
by the devotion and ability with which
the members of all branches of the
Colonial Service are co-operating with
those people in seeking solutions to their
problems. At no time has their work
been of greater significance not only for
the people immediately affected but also
for the British Commonwealth and indeed
the free world as a whole I owe to you
and toall those serving in the territories
under your administration most sincere
gratitude for the vital part which you
are playing in this great partnership and
for all the splendid help which you have
given me as Secretary of State Your
contributions continue to maintain the
highest tradition of the great service of
which you are members. I send you my
heartfelt thanks and my best wishes for
the future."
From Governor, Windward Islands.
"My officers and Igreatly appreciate
your message. We are' encouraged by
the certain knowledge that the interests
of the Colonies and the traditions of our
service will always retain your deep
personal interest."
From Secretary of State.
"As you have already been informed
His Majesty the King on October 27th
entrusted me with charge of the Colonial
Office.
I enter upon this great office with'the
full realization of the vital importance of
its work both to the people of territories
associated with it and to the british Com-
monwealth and democratic world. I know
now .how numerous, varied and complex
are questions to be answered in those terri-
tories but I also know with what energy
capacity and high sense of purpose all con-


cerned with them are striving so find the
answers. I am glad and honoured to have
the opportunity to play my part together
with the peoples of the territories for
which I now have responsibility and with
the Colonial Service itr common effort upon
which you are all engaged."
Fr im Governor, Windward Islands-
"On behalf of Governments and people6
of the Windward Islands I thank you for
y ur inspiring mess ge. We feel confi-
dent that during your term of office the
bonds of affection and common interest
which it ite the Colonies and the British
Commonwealth will be strengthened still
further."
