"4; L, cISHOUARD NA TIONAL 1SCHOOLS To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. SIR,-As my character, as well as my father's, is well known at Fishguard, I can quite afford to leave Mr Drew's remarks to the sound and impartial judgment of its inhabitants. Having now fulfilled what J. considltfi; In ijlfaf. '(v.. I, rilivst^'Jecline to ::t "1' d.g, ,J"" purstie the subject) having neither time nor inclination to do so „ U Yours, &c., JOHN ROWLANDS., The Vicarage, Aberdovey, Dec. 15th. To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. SIR.—Mr Drew writes as if he, forsooth, were faultless, and his opponents were false, capable of writing false entries, giving false certificates, and making false statements J He passes over the register incident very > lightly, as if it were a mere trifle, and wishes, terybody to do the same. I ,t the xiool when the visit of siupn vi paid, and saw and heard all, iucludini, U i3 row's cowardly excuses for his neglect. I can corroborate all my brother says. The pupil teachers had marked their registers at the right: time. The Master was the only delinquent! ,I! Mr Drew makes no attempt to deny that he failed to fulfil his duty towards the pupil teacher. If he had really desired to give the necessary instruction, there would have been no difficulty in the matter, and he would on no account have allowed anything to interpose between him and the perform- ance of his duty. The thing speaks for itself. Having said this much, I feel with my brother that I can leave the family honour and integrity to the judgment of the public, and I too must retire from a controversy which, all wilt readily understand, is most distasteful to me. Yours, &c., E. F. ROWLANDS. The Vicarage, Fishguard. To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. SIR,—Still taking great interest in my native towfi—-of- Fishguard, though not resident," I am favoured from time to time with a sight of the County Echo. In that of the 14th inst., I note that Mr DreW, in the unpleasant and unhappy discussions and I differencies now occurring between two parties in what ought to be an united Church, states the Vicai was at the Schools on Sept. 20th last. He was; "and. on that occasion he was accompanied by my wife (who is his youngest daughter) and myself. He never spoke to Mr Drew, though be did to the children in the Boy&' and GJrlk' Schools. HÈr was very deaf, very weak, and really too unfit to leave his own house. Tlie conversa- tion about the school registers was carried on through his daughter and myself. He inspected the registers, and I totalled some, of them up, though not,, perhaps, in the pre- cise and exact way recommended in the appendix to the new New Code of 1892 1)3. His deafness, during my stay at the Vicarage from Sept. 18th to Sept. 23rd, was so great that I could not carry on any satisfactory and continuous conversation with him.' I fully concur with the opinion expressed ¡ in yonr leading article that a compromise..be soon come»to, and the schools thus be carried on satisfactorily as they have been f rolil their,, origin in 1849 to July 1894. of Fidhguardis I perhaps-not aware that lic)T Al School of J isht,dq erected through the exertions r and superintendence of my mother,, the la,to", Mrs J'j.

Since then the schools'ha ve^continued to prosper to a still greater and more successiuf extent under the existing Manage- _C-M'' ,d .-u- -'TV ';O-'t' ment, which is now in an unjust and uncalled for manner, being interfered with., I aq.i} >bl}kful .,to lid that ) th'e in his well-earned, seclusion from "worldly aTTairs, ""knows nothing of the ingravitude and acelity of temper which is being displayed atpiesent by his, in former days, respectful parishioners. Yours, &c WILLIAM WARE HARRIES. Rector of Michaelston and St. Brides, Super- bly, Cardiff, Dec. 15th, 1893. #«■*■ J ,r To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. SIR,-Being referred to in this unfortunate dispute, I feel it to be my Jbounden cfuty to .? <- take advantage of Mr Drew's quotation, Facts are stubborn things," by producing ^one,^ winch,, with ^ypur permission, I here state, namely, that I did not refuse to attend Lssons. He distinctly told me that being out of my apprenticeship, he was not bound to teach me, and that I could do as I Weed. That I refused to attend, he should, I believe, have officially notified the Managers to that effect, which he did not.—These few remarks, I trust, will throw a little light on the subject.—Yours, &c., JAMES EVANS. Fishguard, Dec. 14th, 1893.
