Berry, Aberdare, wrote asking for an interview with the Board to dis- cuss a certain mode of safe-guarding pro- perty at the, Workhouse and School from the ravages of fire. Mr. D. Hughee moved that the matter be referred to the House Management Committee. Eventually it was agreed to grant Mr. Berry's request. A MALICIOUS LETTER. A letter with a signature, but without any address, was read by the Clerk. It deferred to a certain family in Dowlais who were ini receipt of parish relief, and who, according to the letter, were in cir- cumstances of affluence. The writer con- cluded with this remark, "If such things l'e to be permitted by the Board, the sooner the better we all go on the parish." Rev. Ll. Williams: Is it usual for the Bardto take notice of anonymous letters? It was explained that the letter was not tftrictly lafeionymous. Mrs. Evans said she knew the accused family well. There was no truth in the allegations. She would suggest that they take no notice of them. It wae agreed that the letter should lie on the table.
