AT a MEETING held the 7th day of MARCH, 1838, at the CROWN INN, PONTYPOOL, to take into consideration the making of the above men- tioned road, and the application of the subscriptions entered into for the purpose of procuring a Parliamen- tary Survey, and Estimates of the same, E. H. PHILLIPS, Eøq. IN TUO: CHAIB, It was Resolved, (moved by Mr BROUGH and seconded by Mr JIFKLMS), That a Turnpike Road from the Town of Pontypool, to pass through the Districts of ABERSYCHAN, the N AR- TEG, and BLAENAFON, and from thence to WAENLYGAN, so as to form a junction with the TCRNPIKE-ROAD lead- ing from ABERGAVENNY, to the several Districts of NANTYCLO, BEAUFORT, SIRIIOWY, EBBW VALE, and VICTORIA TOWN, TREDEGVR, RCMNF.Y, DOWI.Als, and MERTHYR, has become highly necessary and is loudly called for by the Public at large, as well as by the In- habitants of the respective Districts through which the said road is intended to pass. Resolved, (moved by Mr MAIGHIN, and seconded by Nlr BROLGH), That this Meeting having been informed, upon the authority of the Iron Masters in the Blaenafon Valley, that their Solicitor has been, and is at this time, actively engaged ill making preparations for at, application to Parliament, for an ACT for the formation of this Road, it is desirable that the laudable and public-spirited en- deavours of those Gentlemen should not be embarrassed by any conflicting measures, on the part of this Meet- ing and that this Meeting does therefore decline to take any further steps in the business, until it shall be seen what services the Gentlemen in question have ren- dered, and are in a situation to render, to the proposed undertaking. Resolved, (moved by Mr SLOPER, and seconded by Mr GILBERT1), That the thanks of this Meeting are eminently due to Capel Hanbury Leigh, Esq., the Lord Lieutenant, for the intimation he has given of his good wishes for the success of the undertaking, and for his liberality in kindly giving such portions of his land as may be re- quired for the road. Resolved, (moved by Mr PIERCE, and seconded by Mr GEORGE,) That the thanks of this Meeting are due to E. H. Phillips, Esq.. for his able conduct in the Chair, and for having originated the proposed undertaking, and for having, at all times, evinced the greatest readiness to promote the same, both by his personal influence and exertion, and by his pecuniary assistance. After the foregoing resolutions had been passed, and after Mr Needham, of the Varteg, had expressed his approval of the conciliatory spirit in which the second of those resolutions had been framed, and of the reso- lutions eenerallv, and the Satisfaction he felt in witness- i-e unanimity and cood feeling which oervaded the Waiting, it was thought, by several gentlemen, most de- sirable, that inasmuch as all differences between parties had been renioved. a Meeting so numerously and res- pectably attenda4 as the present, should be turned to some useful account, and made subservient to the for- warding of the objects for which it had been convened. The three following resolutions were therefore passed in substitution of the second of the foregoing resolutions. Resolved, (moved by Mr NEEDHAM, and seconded bv Mr WINGFIELD), That the subscriptions which have been entered into and paid up, for the purpose of defraying the expenses of a Parliamentary Survey of the proposed Line of Road, be paid over to Mr Wm. Morgan, Banker, Aber- gavenny Mr Thomas Brown, of Blaina; and Mr E. H. Phillips, as Treasurers thereof; and that they be requested to collect and get in the Subscriptions remain- ing unpaid, and also such further Subscriptions as may be entered into. Resolved, (moved by Mr KENRJCK, and seconded by Mr Rhys MORGAN), That the following Gentlemen do constitute a Com- mittee of Management, for the purpose of forwarding the objects of this Meeting, and that they be empowered to advertise for, and appoint, a competent Engineer to make the necessary Parliamentary Surveys and Esti- mates, and that the said Committee be empowered to draw upon the Treasurers for the expenses they may incur :— Mr Phillip Jones Mr Brewer iMr Wm. Morgan, Aberga- Mr Thomas Brown venny Mr Ashwell Mr George Kenrick Mr W. W. Phillips Mr E. H. Phillips Mr Gilbert Mr Hunt Mr Brough Mr Crawshay Bailey Mr J. Pierce Resolved, (moved by Mr PARKER, and seconded by Mr JAMES GEORGE), That it be a respectful instruction to the Committee of Management, that they take steps to make their ap- pointment of an Engineer, as soon as conveniently may be, so as to obtain his Plans and Estimates within three months from this time, and that immediately upon their receiving the said Plans and Estimates, they do con- vene a Public Meeting to examine the same, and to consider the measures necessary to be thereupon taken. It appears that some misunderstanding had arisen in consequence of instructions having been given, as it would appear, to two professional Gentlemen, to take the usual means towards obtaining an Act of Parliament. A few days previously to the meeting a Circular was addressed by Mr Croft, Solicitor, Pontypool, to the several Gentlemen interested in the formation of the road, complaining of the business having got into other hands, he, AIr Croft, having been first instructed. During the Meeting, a copy of a Letter, addressed to Afr Croft bV Ilr Geacti, was received and read by the Chairman, and of which the following is a copy C. H. CROFT, ESQ., TROSN.\NT, PONTYPOOL. Pontypool, March 6th 1838. SIR.-I have just seen, for the first time, the Circular which you have addressed To the Gentlemen supposed to be interested in the proposed line of Road from Ponty- pool to Waenlygan." It is clear that a misunderstand- ing exists somewhere, with reference to the instructions given you to solicit an Act of Parliament for making the line of Road, to which your letter refers. You state that you received such instructions—that you proceeded to do what was necessary in pursuance thereof-and that, in particular, you duly instructed your Parliamen- tary Agents. In those statements I repoe every possible confidence, but I cannot otherwise than regret, that so much delay (accidental as it might have been on your part) should have occurred in the prosecution of an object so much to be desired by all persons interested in the property of, or engaged in business in the several districts, which the contemplated Road would intersect, and of this District in particular. From one part of your Circular, I infer that you are under an impression that there has been a desire on my part to take this business out of your hands. I think it due to myself to satisfy you, that if such an impression exists it has no true foundation. The business was brought into my office, and conducted so far as it has gone, during my absence in London. I have not sought one Subscription, neither, to the best of my recollection, have I called upon, or been in communication with any one upon the subject. Besides this, when it was inti- mated to me that the conducting through Parliament. the required Bill was likely to be confided to me, feeling as strongly impressed as I then did, and syll do, with the advantages that must result to me in common with other persons having Property in the District from the formation of such Hoad, I expressed my intention to give all mv professional services gratuitously, and to make no charge whatever beyond the actual disburse- ments. I am convinced th&t you are as desirous as I 2Wl of promoting so desirable an object, and that pecu- niary gain will be of-no consideration with you, and as I am s'jre you will agree with me, that the object desired is only to be obtained by vigilance and economy, I doubt not you will undertake 'I ebasines-i upon the same terms that I intended performing it. I therefore leave the matter in your hands, and in conclusion beg to say, that I shall be happy to double my Subscription and the amount of loan for which I have set down my name, (namely.t200), and shall always be happy to render every assistance in my power gratuitously. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, W. F. GEACH. This Letter appeared to give great satisfaction to all persons present at the Meeting.
