To The Electors Of Newton 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 renewal of your confidence. Should you decide to
re-elect me, I shall use my utmost endeavours to promote the formation of a wet
dock of a suitable size for the requirements 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,
Scotch-street, October 4th, 1869.
