f A E1 i » b. caub. that tfiv partiality, On Friday, thv paring to resume commenced whoopm. called, for more discord*. I requested the girls not to our master happened to pas& blamed for allowing such noise, v quietness, the more they increased ta. put one band in the trough containing, that remained in thehollow of my hand I sp Afewminules afterwards, I had occasion 1. i. t. sulphuric acid, and was in the act of pour., carboy into a smaller vessel, when one of the gir. field, ca.me directly opposite me, and threw as mu the concavity of her hands would admit, i nmy face. ran away, and in order to frighten her, I gave the lesse. a jerk, little thinking that the liquidwould have nearedher, unfortunately, about a tahlespoonfu! 1 fell upon her head, net. and ear. I was so horrified, hearing that I had injured the girl, that I was unable to render her any assistance, but some of the girls (with kind intentions) injudiciously threw water over the part that had been touched with the acid, thereby in- creasing the injury. I have made every atonement that, a working man could make having given the girl two pounds as compensation for the injury accidentally inflicted by me, and I also pay her at the rate of nine shillings per week until she resumes her work. It is stated in your last week's MERLIN that "the villain was so exasperated that he took hold of a. vessel holding about three pints of pickle (muriatic acid) and threw the contents over the poor young creature. Now, sir, 1 can prove upon oath, and by witnesses, that I was ill the act of pouring out the sulphuric acid in order to proceed with my work, when I unguardedly threw the liquid at the girl. I did not lay hold of the vessel for the purpose of throwing the con- tents on the girl; that would have looked like premeditation. I am also happy in being able to acquaint you that the person of the girl is not much disfigured. I can assure you, sir, that no person coould possibly evince more contrition for the acci- dent, than I have. Trusting, sir, that you will permit of the insertion of the above statement, I beg to subscribe myself Your most obeedient servant, Trosnant, 23rd July, 1845. WILLIAM BIRD. —
