T ADIES AND GENTLEMEN, J The period for which you did me the honour of electing me three years ago as member of Llan- won no School Board is now about to expire, and I come to you for a renewal of that confidence which you then so substantially reposed in me. During the time which I have represented you, I have at all times endeavoured to discharge the varied obligations wiiich devolved upon me, in conjunction with my brother members, with efficiency and economy, and I venture to hope that our efforts in that respect have not been un- productive of success, as the triennial report of the board, just published, so clearly testifies. I have paid special attention to the building work in connection with the Board, and my life- long experience as mason and builder has quali- fied me to be of some service to you in this im- portant feature of the Board's work. My conduct as member will bear the strictest investigation, and if again elected the same fidelity to your general interests as in the past will regu- late my conduct in the future. ° Again asking for a renewal of your confidence at the approaching election, I remain, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, tt f WILLIAM WHITE PHILLIPS, iiafod, » February 6th, 1889.
