LETTER FROM A BERRIEW MAN. Trooper Martin Bevan, 6th Inniskilling Dragoons, a native of Berriew, in a letter from Arundel, dated 22nd December, writes to a friend at the Railway Hotel, Oswestry, as follows :-I am very glad to say I am not wound >d yet or dead as you see, but I have been very near it several times. We had a !!eI¡eral.en!ttg'ment the other day and after the battle we went to the Boer's position to see what work we had done. We found scores of graves, and what an awful sight we witnessed Legs and arms were sticking out of the graven the dead not having bjen properly buried. After rhe battle we were on them so soon that they were glad to clear away witi. heavy loss. No doubt \jn have been wonder- ing wha' has become of me. Well, you know we are fightiug day and night, so I have not much time to write. The weather here is llubearable-hot, ami the nights so cold. I like the war all right. We can get letters here just the same as at home. We aro going to attack Colesberg some of these days. The Boers are there in thousands and they say they will never allow a British soldier in the place, but they will be sadly mistaken. They wiil find us there one of these days and they will get a warIIl time of it. No doubt we will get it a bit rough before we land there.
