TO THE INDEPENDENT ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, A Vacancy having unexpectedly occurred in the rep esentation of your Borough, through the much lamented decease of the late Marquess Canide- and the consequent elevation of your Representa- tive tothe House of Peers, I beg to announce my- self as a Candidate for your suffrages. My political principles having been recently laid before you, it is unnecessary for me now to enttr into them at any length, but with reference to the important question of Parliamentary Reform, I shall be prepared to vote for a £6 rating Borough Franchise. As I stated on a former occasion I am desirous of meeting the conscientious objections of those who differ from the Established Church by the adoption of any Measure which may relieve them from the payment of Church Rates. I place full reliance on the Ministry of Lord Derby as capable of conducting the affairs of this great Country with honor and success, and in the event of my being elected your Representative, you may rely on my best endeavours to promote the well being and prosperity of your ancient Borough I have the honor to remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful Servant, HOWEL GWYN.
