TO THE ELBCTOES 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 supporfNjvill 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 and 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 Mender. I have the honour to be, GENTLEMEN, I Your obedient Servant, BRECKNOCK. Brecknock, January 8th, 1866. TO THE E L E C, TOR S OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND C 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 well known to you all as being Conservative and Independent. I consider the very essence of the Creed of the Conservative to be, the use of the pruning Knife, carefully to cut off every proved and acknowledged abuse, and to aim at progress and improvement. Though firmly attached to the Established Church, I nevertheless deeply respect the convic- tion of those who honestly differ from me in their religious views, and I shall therefore support any Measure that will relieve those who entertain con- scientious scruples from any longer paying Church Rates. Believing the Income Tax to be inquisitorial, I am opposed to its continuance, and think it ought only to be used as a temporary resource in cases 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 which my Family has been, connected for many centuries, and I should indeed feel proud and gra- tified if the connection were ofeniented by my becoming your Representative in the House (of Jpomiuona, You may depend, in^guch an ever* upon my best exertions being used to promote in every way the welfare of your Borough, as well as of the Country at large. I have the honor to remain, ■V- GENTLEMEN, Your Faithful Servant, BreeoKn HOWEL GWYN. Oct. 6th, 1865. F TO THE iNjyEF^DENT -ELECTORS OF THE • OFBRECON AND TOWN Qp LLYWELL. GENTLEMEN, After the very flatlteg manner in which you have received me, i sKld be ungrateful indeed, were I no ^ace this early opportunity of returning you my Host sincere and heartfelt thanks. The success I have met exceeds my most sanguine expectations, a11" pertain no doubt, when my canvass is complete ths^ j shan find a decided majority of votes in my ^aVt>ir3 auj in this belief I subscribe myself, Your most obliged and grateful Servant, HOWEL GWYxr Brecon, October 9th, 1865.

TO THE E L E, C TORS AND NON-ELEOTORS 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 the Field, require reviewing:— Howel Gwyn, Esquire, is a pure Independent Conservative, willing to support any Measure to relieve those (who honestly differ from him in their religious views,) from paying Church Rates, con- sidering the Ballot inconsistent with the pure spirit of Englishmen, we need not expect him to vote for the extension of the Franchise. 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."
