NATIONAL FOOTPATH PRESERVATION SOCIETY. To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser." Dear sir,—You some time back kindly noticed this society, and perhaps you will oblige us with another few words in your paper on the progress we have made. There are now thirty-two vice-presidents, besides His Grace the Duke of Westminster as patron, and the Earl of Bective, president. Our prospectus shows that upwards of forty members of the House of Com- mons (irrespective of party) have joined the society. We are constantly applied to from all parts of the country for advice respecting the closing of public footpaths, encroachment on roadside land, and I am glad to report that three branch or local societies have lately been formed—at Scarborough, Leicester and Bristol-all doing excellent work. The Bristol Society has already saved two footpaths, or I should say one was a country lane, which had boldly been taken possession of by a farmer and actually cultivated with wheat and potatoes! What audacity this, and yet there are some persons who ignorantly declare there is no necessity for such a society. May I urge on the authorities in your locality to form a branch society to prevent illegal acts of this nature, or at all events they should mark the public footpaths red on the 6-inch ordnance maps, before disputes arise. Parties desirous of erecting convenient stiles should obtain our prospectus, which gives drawings of numerous stiles. It can be forwarded on receipt of two stamps. Our reports are 6d. each to non-members. An increase of members is much desired. The subscription is 5s. a year. I hope for the good of such an important cause you will kindly oblige me with a notice, And am, sir, yours very truly, HENBY ALLNUTT, 42, Essex-street, Strand. Secretary.
