TO THE ELECTORS OF NEWTOWN WARD.
 
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,  The period
will shortly elapse for which I was elected,
by a majority of the Trustees, to fill the
vacancy in the representation of your ward
caused by the retirement of Mr. Collins.
Having previously to my election ascertained,
by personal canvass, that the appointment
would not be distasteful to you, I have the
more confidence in offering myself for a re-
newal of your confidence.  Should you de-
cide to re-elect me, I shall use my utmost
endeavors to promote the formation of a
wet-dock of a suitable size for the require-
ments of the port, believing, as I do, that
the continued prosperity of your town
depends in a great measure on increased
harbour accommodation.
 
        I have the honour to be,
                 Ladies and Gentlemen,
                        Your obedient servant,
                                      JOHN JACKSON.
  Scotch-street, October 4th, 1869.
