GENTLEMEN, 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. I 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 y 11 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 more fully 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 bnce more your representative. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, GODFREY C. MORGAN. 39, Port-man Square, June 28th, 1865. CANTREFF, HRECONSHIRE.
