WERTER BASIL BLAKE GENTIL
... This is to notify those to whom it may concern that the above named having left his home I have no connection whatever with him, and I warn any person harbouring him of giving him credit, as I will in no way be responsible for any liability contracted by him or responsible for any of his actions

from the OHINEMURI GAZETTE

WERTER BASIL BLAKE GENTIL
... Referring to the scurrilous and libelous notice that appeared in your advertisment coloumns of your paper of the 2nd inst., under the above heading, I may say in justice to myself that I have not depended on my father for support for the last ten years, neither have I committed him to any liability whatever during that period, and why he should take up this attitude towards me is a matter that might be better dealt with by experts than myself. To brand me in such a manner is not only unchristian, but cruel in the extreme, for am I not "flesh of his flesh," and if I possess some weakness that he does not approve of, is it not his duty as a parent to strengthen and nurture rather than crush. The reason I left home may be better imagined that described - I am etc., WERTER GENTIL, Paeroa

The witness related an incident that had occurred during supper, the plaintiff, after Mr Preddy had gone out, remarking that he did not care hether or not he got the 'sack'.
