ASHFIELD TOWER, GOSFORD, NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, 27th August, 1881.
MY DEAR SIR, – As I understand you may settle in New Zealand or some other of the British Colonies, it may be of service to you to have the opinion of some of your professional brethren here as to your ability and uprightness of character. I therefore have much pleasure in having an opportunity to say, that in the many business transactions I have had with you, both as an articled clerk and as assistant with Mr. J. A. Philipson, I always found you well acquainted with the principles and practices of the law, and a gentleman of the strictest integrity.
Trusting you may have a good and safe voyage, and should you settle in New Zealand or any other place, I am sure, from your business habits, ability, and integrity, you will succeed and give satisfaction to your clients.
I shall at all times be glad to hear how you are getting on.
Believe me, yours faithfully,
JOSEPH GEO. JOEL,
FRANK LOGAN, Esq., Newcastle-on-Tyne.

I have known Mr. Logan during the whole period of his service under articles with Mr. Joseph A. Philipson, Solicitor, of this town. Since he was admitted he has acted as Managing Clerk to Mr Philipson, and during that time I have frequently had business transactions with Mr. Logan, and in my opinion he is an able Solicitor, he is clear-headed, ready, and ﬁrm, yet gentlemanly in his manners, and courteous to all.
ROBERT DICKINSON, Solicitor.
