Henry Hilton, Testimonial
The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser
31 July 1875
On Wednesday evening last a number of gentlemen met at the Commercial Hotel, to present Mr. Henry Hilton with the testimonial in recognition of his long and faithful services as postmaster we alluded to in a former issue.
Mr. E. G. Brown, as chairman, having read an address on behalf of the subscribers thereto, and then handing to Mr Hilton a substantial token of their esteem, viz., about £30, in eulogistic terms referred to the good service which this gentleman has for years past rendered to the community in his character of postmaster.
Mr. Hilton in a few feeling words gracefully returned his acknowledgments to the friends who had shewn him such marked kindness, and Mr. L. Mandelson, in proposing a vote of thanks to the chairman, paid Mr. Brown some well merited compliments, which Mr. Tuohy, who seconded the rote, cordially endorsed.
