WHO BROUGHT MR Su]ffl )-p ARUY OUT? INKS OF COURT HOTEL, March 23rd, 1882. DEAit SIR,-I am obliged by your telegram calling my attention to the report in the Liverpool Mercury of Mr Sorton-Parry's meeting last night .t the Guild lIaIl, Car- narvon. I knew nothing of Mr R..Sorton-Parry's candidature in ISM) until the day he arrived at Bangor. To the best of my resoliection I was told of it at the County Court, which was held at the Rechabite Hall, adjoining the British Hotel, Bangor, 011 that day. I imuie iiately told my informant that I considered Mr So. ton-Parry a totally unfit candidate, I also iiuoruied him. of some matters connected with ihat gentleman which had come professionally to my know- ledge, and some other matters that were well- known in the legal profession in the county, but not to my informant, who was considerably astonished at the information. I at first declined to meet Mr Sorton-Parry, but as the British Hotel was next door, and I moreover had occasion to go there for lunch, I ¡' went there later on, and saw him in tile coffee- room. T-told him that I considered he had not the slightest chance of being returned, and ab- solutely declined to have anything to do with his Address, or that I even countenanced his candidature in any way; on the contrary, I ¡ have always considered the idea of his being a candidate for the boroughs preposterous, and have never concealed this opinion. I never corrected, or even saw the manuscript of his address, or knew anything of it till I saw it in the public newspapers. He subsequently called at my office and asked me to look through the draft of his re- tiring address, I declined to do so. He then said that he wished me to do so professonally. I still refused, stating that a retiring election address was not a professional matter, but sim- ply a matter for his own personal taste. Ha, however, insisted on reading it to me. After he had done so, I said I saw nothing objection- able in it except the intimation in the concluding portion that he intended to come forward and fight against all comers at the next vacancy. I.told him in the most distinct and unequivocal terms that Iconsideredhe hadno claim whatever on the boroughs nor the sligh test chance of success. lIe called at my office again a few months ago (about the time Mr Bulkeley Hughes was taken ill), and introduced Mrs Sorton-Parry to me- I then repeated in very decided terms my views as to his intended candidature. He pressed me to accept a retainer, which I doclmed, saying I would sup- port the candidate selected by the Liberal Association. He then pressed me to support his name at the Liberal Association. This I also declined to do.—Yours faithfully, (Signed) J. ROBERTS. B. D. Williams, Esq., Mr Jones-Parry's Committee Rooms, Bridge-street, Carnarvon.
