Correspondence from Mr Iwao Tirumo, President, Marubeni Corporation, following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister of Australia's Northern Territory. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from overseas, throughout the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: ''Your role in the growth and development of industry in Northern Territory has been great indeed. We know your presence will be sorely missed''.
