THE PROPOSED INVITATION 10 THE PRINCE OF WALES. SIR,—I should esteem it a favour if you would allow me the benefit of your widely-circulated and influential columns for the purpose of laying before the public a plain and simple statement of facts. On the oOth March last a requisition, numerously signed, was sent to the Mayor of this town (C. W. David, Esq.), requesting him to call a public meeting for the purpose of making arrangements to invite the Prince of Wales to be present at the opening of the forthcoming meeting of the Royal Agricultural Society. When the matter was brought before the Town Council the request of the ratepayers was refused, and to impress upon the Mayor the importance they attached to such request, the following letter was addressed to him on the 22nd May last, and signed by aljout DO of those who signed the ori- ginal requisition. Bute Docks, Cardiff, 22nd May, 1872. C. W. David, Esq Mayor of Cardiff, Sir,—We the undersigned having placed our signatures to a memorial respectfully requesting you to convene a public meeting for the purpose of taking into considera- tion the invitation of the Prince of Wales to the Agricul- tural Show, to bf held in this town in July next, were surprised at the report of what occurred in respect of this matter at the meeting of the Council held on the 13th instant. We would ask you to reconsider the conclusion arrived at by that meeting, and we think it would most assuredly be more gratifying to His Royal Highness to be invited by the unanimous voice of the people publicly expressed, than in any other manner. We think also that it would be more satisfactory to the whole population to know that it was from them personally that the invitation proceeded. We hope for these reasons you will comply with our request, and convene a public meeting at your earliest convenience, for by so doing we think you will consult the best interests of the town, and conduce to that good feeling and satisfaction of everyone so essential to the success of any such occasion as the one under con- sideration." To which the following letter was received from the Mayor in reply :— Cardiff, May 23, 1872. Dear Sir,—I am in receipt of your letter and enclo- sure, which I will lay before the Town Conncil at their next meeting.—Truly yours, "Mr. S. Marks." "CHAS. W. DAVID." And there the matter rests. There has been no notice of any such letter having been produced by the Mayor, or any one else, for the consideration of the Council. The memorial and the letter are quietly shelved, and the wishes of nearly a hundred of the leading ratepayers of this town are disregarded with a coolness quite re- freshing at this season of the year. The written promise of his Worship to me of the 23rd May is evidently of not much more worth than he paper upon which it is written, as no practical results will have floweclfrom it. I will not comment any further "n these facts, but will leave them to speak for themselves, and the public at large to draw their own conclusions.—I am Sir your obedient servant, SOLOMON MARKS.
