p.3 Presentation - Yesterday afternoon Mr. W.P. Chaffey was the recipient of a beautiful present on the occasion of his ceasing his connection with the Portsmouth ship yard, before leaving for California, where he will enter business of an important nature. The present was made by the employees, and consisted of a beautiful plated tea service, Mr. E. Smith reading a complimentary address, and Mr. R. Dodds making a short speech in connection therewith. Mr. Chaffey has been prominently identified with the shipyard, and has been very popular, of which this presentation is convincing evidence.
