Correspondence from the Governor of East Nusa Tenggara Province (West Timor), Piet Alexander Tallo SH, following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister of Australia's Northern Territory. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from throughout the Asia Pacific, the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: ''...I am pleased to convey our greatest thanks to the honourable Mr and Mrs Stone for your relationship and co-operation during your time as Chief Minister of the Northern Territory. Your performance and concern during your time as Chief Minister has been priceless for the community and the Government of East Nusa Tenggara as a symbol of friendship and family''.
