Viscount Hampden, the newly appointed Governor of New South Wales, is making all official appointments necessary to his approaching departure for the Colony. His private secretary will be Mr. E. Gathorne Hardy, who is at present on the staff of Lord Glasgow in New Zealand. Mr. Gathorne Hardy, who is a member of the Cranbrook family, arrived three days before Sir Robert Duff's death, or he was to have been that gentleman's secretary. He has given proof of excellent abilities which ought to serve him in good stead in the new post to which he has been called. 6.7.1895
