TO rlIE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECKNOCK AND THE TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, It is now Three Months since I last addressed you, and the time is drawing near when you will be called upon to elect your Representative in Parliament. The death of Lord Palmerston, who for so many years conducted the affairs of this Country, is felt by all as a national loss. Lord Russell has been called upon to lead the Liberal Party, and a Reform Bill will be brought forward under his auspices. I am in favour of a considerable extension of the Electoral Franchise, and wish to see a better representation of the edu- cated and working classes without pledging my- self to the details of a measure not yet before the public, my support will be given to the principle of any Reform Bill which shall command the ge- neral approval of the Liberal party. I shall be ready to lend my aid in favour of the abolition of Church Rates, being desirous of deal- ing justly with those who dissent from the Estab- lished Church, and having no fear that she will suffer by such a measure. I need hardly repeat that I shall give a firm told independent support to a Liberal Government. The very kind reception I have met with, and the distinct promises I have received, leave me no doubt that you will return me your Member. I have the honour to be, GENTLEMEN, Your obedient Servant, BRECKNOCK. Brecknock, January 8th, 1866. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWELL. GENTLEMEN, Solicitous as I am for the honor of represen- ting you in Parliament, my respect for your feelings on the loss of your late lamented Member has hitherto commanded my silence. My political principles are, I have no doubt ■^ell known to you all as being Conservative and ^dependent. I consider the very essence of the reed of the Conservative to be, the use of the pruning Knife, carefully to cut off every proved aQd acknowledged abuse, and to aim at progress and improvement. Though firmly attached to the Established nurch, I nevertheless deeply respect the convic- t°n of those who honestly differ from me in their views, and I shall therefore support any ■Measure that will relieve those who entertain con- scruples from any longer paying Church ■Hates. T Believing the Income Tax to be inquisitorial, am opposed to its continuance, and think it Ought only to be used as a temporary resource in castS of War or any great financial embarrassment of the Country. I consider the Ballot to be incon- sistent with the spirit of the English constitution, and am convinced it would not prove any real advantage or safeguard to the Voter. I am no stranger to your ancient Borough and County, with "^hich my Family has been connected for many Cnturies, and I should indeed feel proud and gra- I tified if the connection were cemented by my k ^coming your Representative in the House of Commons. You may depend, in such an event, I ^Pon my best exertions being used to promote in | «very way the welfare of your Borough, as well as of the Country at large. I have the honor to remain, I GENTLEMEN, f *r Your Faithful Servant, tth 1865 HOWEL GWYN. Tut T0 THE I ANBEELECTORS THE I BOROUGH OF BRECON | TOWN OF LLYWELL. I ^NTLEMEN, I you h ^ter Tery ^anUer jn /°u have received me, I should m t f i were I not to embrace importunity of returning you my most sincere and e9,ttfelt thanks. i The success I have met with far exceeds my j: T°st sanguine expectations, and I entertain no v when my canvass is complete, that I shall j •1a decided majority of votes in my favour, and i 1n. this belief I subscribe myself, I Your most obliged and grateful Servant, k HOWEL GWYN. ^econ, October 9th, 1865.

TO THE E L E C T 0 R S AND NON-ELBOTOES OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, The pleasing manner in which you re- ceived me on a former occasion has tempted me again to offer my services to your notice. "The addresses of the Two Candidates already in t^e Field, require reviewing:— »■ Howel Gwyn, Esquire, is a pure Independent Conservative, willing to support any Measure to relieve those (who honestly differ from him m their religious views,) from paying Church, con- sidering the Ballot inconsistent witlf the '■ pure spirit of Englishmen, we need not expect him to vote for the extension of the Fran,chse. the Earl of Brecknock, from his name and con- nection with your Ancient Borough, has a claim for your support. His political opinions being ad- verse to those of our late lamented Member, will neutralize that claim. The line of policy expressed by the above-named Candidates, my humble opinion is, that they are not liberal enough for the Electors and Non-Elec- tors of this Borough. The special point I wish to bring before you is, that I am prepared to be more liberal, having been fortunate enough to take advantage of the Markets which enables me to offer you a superb lot of WINTER CLOTHING on the most liberal terms so that one and all shall exclaim Phipps for Brecknock." I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, H. PHIPPS. Red House, High Street, Brecon, October 30th, 1865. WHITTIIGTON LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY. CAPITAL 100,000, With power to increase to One Million.
