TO THE UJ !J !lfJ C!J U ([) œ OF TLIF BOROUGH OF BRECON, A 11 Town of LlywelI. GKNTI.F.MF.V, IN my last Address, which I published immediately on the completion of my Canvass, I stated that I had received the undoubted promises of support from a Majority of the Electors. The announcement of the final State of the Poll has fully justified those expressions and it is with high pride and gratification, that I find myself once more chosen by you to serve as your Representative in Par- liament. To those Electors who have supported me I return my cordial thanks, for the hearty manner in which they gave me their Votes, whilst [ sincerely trust that those who have conscientiously opposed me, may hereafter become more favorably inclined towards me. In the performance of my duties in Parliament, it shall be my anxious care to merit the distinguished honor you have conferred upon me, by a studious atten- tion, as well to the local interests of this Borough, as to those of the Empire in general. I entreat my Friends that this contest may not be productive of any animosities between them and their neighbours, earnestly exhorting them to bear their triumph with moderation; and it is my sincere wish, that the peaceful harmony of social intercourse may be speedily restored among the Inhabitants of this Borough. I remain Gentlemen, Your obliged and faithful Servant, CHARLES MORGAN. Brecon, July 26th, 1837. Final State of the Poll. MR. MORGAN 156 MR. LLOYD 102 Majority for MR.

GEXTLEMEN, 1HE lamented death of our late beloved King A has rendered a Dissolution of Parliament necessary, and there is every appearance that such an event will take placewitliin a short period. It becomes therefore my duty to state, that it is my intention, whenever the time comes, to offer my Services again to yon, as one of your Represen- tatives in the House of Commons, I need not (having had so longa connexion with you) enter at this moment into any detail of my Political Princi- ples,—they must he well known to you. And it is, believe we, a source of sincere gratification, when. I reflect that they have on many former occasions- procured for me, at your hands, so cordial anii efficient a support. To those principles I mean most scrupulously »o adhere, as I am convinced they alone are capable- of guiding this great Country through the dangers, which have for some time past so seriously threat- ened it. I shall shortly leave London for our County,. when I shall take an early opportunity of paying my respects to you in person. 1 am, Gentlemen, Your i-nost obliged And faithful Servant, GEO. ITICE TREVOR. Stratton Street, July 1st, 1837. TO THE zIli2i it OF THE UNITED BOROUGHS OF MONMOUTH, Newport and Usk. GKNTLEMES, IT is with much regret that I adtlrl's you on the inauspicious termination of the struggle in which you have been engaged. V ou have, upon this occasion, recorded a considerable majority of your votes in favour of my opponent, and I should bow with all humility to your decision, did 1 believe it to be the free and unbiassed expression of your political opinions. Such, however, from the as- surances of support with which I was met previously to going to the poll, I am inclined to think cannot ipe.- the case. A mighty engine has been silently but effec- tually working against the Conservative cause in itese Boroughs, invigorating the arm of its enemies, with- drawing some wavering friends from its ranles and crippling the energies of many of its genuine and true- supporters. This mighty engine, gentlemen, is non public opinion—but an establishment, the direction of whose powers has given to my opponent an influence greater than could have been anticipated, and has placed several of my friends in the l-idiculous but painful position of indirectly fighting against their own political views. Added to this, the active interference- of persons, who from the delicacy of their situation we- might reasonably have expected would not have ap- peared on the stage, and the broken faith of some- pro- fessing friends, have contributed largely to my (tufoex. I should not have alluded to this subject di<J' I not think it right to relieve myself from the imputation of having disturbed the harmony of your abodes unneces- sarily, and without a reasonable chanee of success. Allow me to take this opportunity of expressing a hope, tha'. the pleasing ties of private friendship, which may in ttiiy instance have been temporarily severed by the. warmth of political feeling, may be speedily and per- manently re-united. Conservatives! most hsartily do 1 hope that ere Were: your good cause may be triumphant. May victory caowiv your efforts under some more fortunate leaded In parting, permit me to offer you my warmest thanks for your generous support upon this and former occasions, and to assure you that I shall ever feel grateful for tie kindness I have experienced at your hands. I remain, Gentlemen, Yours, faithfully and obliged, JOSEPH BAILEY, Jnn. Glanusk Park, 27th July, 1837.
