MR. R. SORTON-PARRY AND THE CARNARVONSHIRE BOROUGHS. Castle Hotel, Carnarvon, 24th March, 1880. To the Editor of the North Wales Express.' DEAR SIR,-I shall esteem it a favour if you will kindly publish the following letters.— Your obedient servant, R. SORTON-PARRY. [COPY]. Carnarvon, March 22nd, 1880. To R. Sorton-Parry, Esq. Sir,—Understanding that you have been in- duced to come forward as a candidate for the representation of the Carnarvonshire Boroughs, by an invitation addressed to you from a portion of the electors of these boroughs, I, on behalf of an influential meeting of voters of the borough of Carnarvon, venture to ask you to reconsider your intention. I beg to represent to you how important it is at the present juncture of affairs that there should be no ground for asserting that there exists any split in the Liberal party; and that whoever is re- turned should be returned unanimously, and if possible without any contest.—I am, sir, your obedient servant, W. A. DARBISHIRE, Chairman. On behalf of the Liberal Association and this meeting. Castle Hotel, Carnarvon, 23rd March, 1880. Sir,—I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 22nd instant, handed to me by you,—accompanied by a deputation of prominent members of the Liberal party, soliciting me to reconsider my position as the Liberal candidate for the honour of represent- ing the Carnarvonshire Boroughs at the forth- coming election in Parliament, rather than be the cause of a division in the Liberal party at this most momentous crisis when the future of this great empire is at stake for weal or woe. It is due to myself to state that I am a candi- date in response to an invitation from influential gentlemen, prominent members of the Liberal party. The favourable reception which I have met with in all the boroughs has surpassed my most sanguine expectations, and I feel assured that if I persevered in this contest I should be placed at the head of the poll. As a paramount desire not to imperil the great cause of the Liberal party, when unity is absolutely neces- sary if we are to free this great empire from the present tyrannical and personal Govern- ment, which threatens the liberties of the freest people in the world,—for these reasons, and acting on the advice of my chief supporters, I withdraw from the contest for the present. It is, however, my full intention to offer myself as a candidate at the next election, and press my claims at the poll to represent the boroughs of my native county in the Commons House of Parliament against all comers. Thanking you as well as the members of the Liberal Association for yours and their courtesy, —I am, sir, your obedient servant, R. SORTON-PARRY. W. A. Darbishire, Esq., Chairman of the Liberal Association, Carnarvon.
