TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECKNOCK AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, It now being officially announced that the present Parliament will be dissolved on the 6th of July, I again beg to offer myself as a Candidate for Re-Election after a service of so many years. My political principles have undergone no change, and the more I reflect on the sound policy I p pursued by Lord Palmerston and his Government, the stronger is mv conviction that it has been at- tended with the happiest results to the nation at large. As you all know, I am a strong advocate for perfect and unfettered liberty of opinion and action—peace and strict neutrality—with due regard to the safety and interests of the Country. Already has the Chancellor of the Exchequer to a vast extent, reduced our Taxation, leaving a large surplus revenue at his command-holding out every prospect of a still further decrease-if the existing Financial, Foreign and Commercial, policy of the presentGovernii-ieilt. s steadily pursued. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, With sincere gratitude for the uniform kindness and confidence ever shown me, Your obedient and faithful Servant, LLOYD V. WATKINS. Brecknock, 30th June, 1865. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF BRECON. GENTLEMEN, ''LV In a few days the present Parliament will be dissolved, and from the kind support you have hitherto afforded me, I venture once more to solicit your suffrages, and to seek the high honor of repre- senting you in the next Parliament. During the last six years I have given a steady and independent support to Conservative principles, and shall continue to do so, being of opinion that as the Nation is prosperous and the people con- tented, it would be unwise to try any organic or revolutionary change in the Constitution—at the same time any measure conducive to the well-being of the people, by whatever Government proposed, would receive my support. It will always be my pleasure to support any measure beneficial to the Agricultural Interests, and in any future remission of Taxation, to claim for the Farmers that justice which has hitherto been denied them, by the re- tention of the Malt tax. I shall always vote against the Ballot. I hope before long to solicit your votes in person, and to explain moreJully than is possible, in an ad- dress, the sentiments that will guide my future con- duct should you do me the honor to elect me^once more your representative. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, GODFREY C. MORGAM. 39, Porlman Square, June 28th, 1865.
