GEORGE - THE SPORTSMAN: I write about New Zealand's greatest footballer whose playing days were in the seventies and eighties of last century.  I realise that no-one survives other than myself, who can tell of him.  George Thomas BAYLY, of Taranaki, who died in Auckland was the best footballer New Zealand has known. He was born at Waitara, one of the famous family of footballers.  George, the eldest, was educated in Australia, and on returning to New Zealand became a sheepfarmer at Mokoia, near Hawera.

I claim I have the knowledge and the experience to assess the merits of players as I played for Wellington in ‘77, for Poverty Bay in ‘78 and ‘79, and for Taranaki well into the 1900's, and I am the only survivor of most of the teams I played with.

George Bayly was supreme as a captain of a team.  He was a fast runner, well knit and strong, and of sound judgement in all life's affairs.  He was always in good condition, tolerant, a fine drop-kick, a certain collarer, and in my opinion the best place-kick New Zealand has known. George Bayly was a good cricketer and a top-knotch captain of an eleven and New Zealand has produced no better horseman in the hunting field and no man with a higher sense of honour in my long life have I ever known.                             - C E MAJOR, Kohimarama

A BRAVE MAN'S FINISH AND A GOOD WOMAN'S LETTER. Mr Mather, of Glorit, has received the following letter in reference to the death of Sergt. Cliff W. Mather, who was well known to many readers of this paper. The letter was written by Sister C. E. Cameron, of No. 1. Canadian Casualty Clearing Hospital, and is dated July 1, 1916 : "Dear Mr Mather, Your son, Sergt. Mather, was admitted to the hospital a week ago, suffering from abdominal wounds. An operation was performed in the hope of saving his life. For two days he seemed to be doing fairly well but he gradually sank, losing consciousness Thursday night, lingering until last night (Friday June 30th.) when he peacefully slept away at 9.30. His wounds were very severe, and had his life been spared he would have been very weak, as internal organs were affected. He made a brave fight, and was so grateful, and considerate of all his fellow-patients, that he endeared himself to all. He asked me to write to his uncle, Mr Charles Bayly, in London. I did so. He spoke of his home, and sent his love. He would have liked to have seen all his dear ones, but as he said to me "This is part of the game." With sincere sympathy, Yours very truly, Christine E. Cameron, (Sister.)
