THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Free Press. Sir,—I am told that several letters have appeared in your paper upon the above matter, but as yet with no effect. And may I be favoured with a small space to make an appeal to the tradesmen of the town to take the matter into consideration. The nominal hour for closing is 7, but this is not adhered to, and, sad to say. it is very often nearly 8 before the shut- ters are put up. I think that young men and women, who are stationed in a close atmosphere all day,ought to be allowed a little leisure in the evening to get fresh air and exercise whereas, when the shops are not closed before 8, we are seldom out before 9, and it is then time to return. In other towns where I have been engaged, I have found the tradesmen punctual in their closing; but the short period I have resided in this town, I have found them most irre- gular. I hope, sir, that this letter will not fail to in- duce some of the drapers to adhere to the rules. I say, if they name an hour they should stick" to it- Punctuality is the soul of business." Pardou me for thus trespassing on your valuable space. I am, yours faithfully, Pontypool, Oct. 9th. DRAPER'S ASSISTANT.
