"THE WRECK OF THE ARGOSY." To the Editor of the Free Press, Dear Sir,—Kindly allow us through the medium of your popular paper co return our hearty thanks to the public for the support and patronage ac- corded the performances of the above work. It is especially gratifying to us that on two nights at any rate we had good houses," although there have been a few defections from the society last year, and certain individuals have been trying to cast ridicule upon the society and the work selected for representation this year. However, we have no wish to dwell upon this, but are quite con- tent to leave the judgment in the hands of those who patronised us so generously. We wish particularly to thank the many friends who rendered us valuable aid. notably Mr. A. J. Joshua, of New Inn, who kindly painted for us a set of scenes which were unanimously voted to be exceedingly pretty and effective; also Mr. H. Bunting, of the Clarence Hotel, who placed his large club room at our disposal for the purpose of scene painting, and Mr. Evan Jones, Manchester House, who lent some valuable curtains for deco- rating the proscenium. Many others, too, are worthy of our best thanks,which they will receive through the usual channel. In conclusion, we would like to state that it is our intention to start soon after Christmas to prac- tise "Erminie," a comic opera which abounds in pretty music and amusing situations, but as to this we will avail ourselves of your advertising columns in due course. We may say that if possible we purpose keeping the present society together, and with the exception of a few friends to whom we shall send invitations, we shall not require any additional assistance. Thanking you in anticipation, THE COMMITTEE OF THE PONTYPOOL AMATEUR OPERATIC SOCIETY. J. EDMONDE (Alaw Gwent), Conductor. P. J. OSBORNE, Hon. Sec. Pontypool, Dec. 31, lSbl.
