IVe do not. consider i>urselves responsible for the opinions and sentiments of our Correspondents DEAR SIR,—We cannot allow the letter published this week in the Telegraph to pass unnoticed Ours being as every one is aware, the largest estiblishmentin the town, and, of course, employing a great number of young people in and out of doors, the public may naturally suppose the letter in question, rigned I The Song of the Shirt' may apply to our iL m. We therefore consider it only just to our assistants and those in our employ, as weli as ourselves, to state that, although this has been by far the busiest season we have had for some years, our young people in the work-rooms have not com- menced business before nine in the morning, and onlv on two or three occasions have they been later than from holf-past eight to nine o'clock at night; and as a rule an through the season on Saturdays they finish earlier. When there is a great" pressure of business in the mil- linery or dressmaking departments, the first bands have instruotions from us to procure extra assistance, which can always be done. There is another point in the letter that we cannot pass by the hours stated by the Act of Palliameut-and a very wise, gocd Act it is-now allow out door workers to come at niae in the morning, leave at one, return at two, then leave at five, and return at six o'clock, so with our explanation the working hours can be easily calculated. We believe it is nothing but a bad system of management that late hours ate so fre- quently kept by many houses. Furtber:-Any assis- tant or apprentice during the summer season, has only to ask for a few hours or a day, for a little out door re- creation it is always granted. We are, Dear Sir, Yours faithfully, GREENISH & DA-WHINS. Commerce House, 23, 24, 25, & 26; Market Street, Haverfordwest.
