PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL
24 April 1979
Dear Mrs Curtis,
It is proposed to submit your name to The Queen for the award of Queen’s Service Medal for Community Service (Q.S.M.) on the occasion of Her Majesty’s Birthday, in recognition of your services to New Zealand, and I should be glad if you would inform me as soon as possible whether the proposed distinction would be acceptable to you.
Will you therefore be good enough to send to me at Government House, Wellington an ‘Urgent’ telegram containing only the word “Acceptable” or the words “Not acceptable”, as the case may be. The telegram should be sign with your full Christian names, surname and current address.
I feel sure you will realise that the matter should be treated as strictly confidential until you hear from me again.
Mrs Audree C. L. Curtis,
c/o Mount Erin Road,
