Hands Across the Sea. Sir,—Some time back I noticed in your paper, an account of an old soldier who was sent to prison for nine months for shooting a few rabbits; and then of his being hounded from work on a farm in the neighbourhood, for this crime, which he bad expiated once at a frightful cost, by keepers who insisted that the farmer should sack him. Such horrible cruelty made my blood run cold 1 as I read it. I often hear tales of cruelty from Armenians, Slavs, Poles and Russians who are doing well in this better land. Send the poor fellow out to me and I will take care that he gets leave to live, and, if he wants to shoot or fish in his spare time, he will have plenty ef opportunity. He shall have a comfortable home, lots of better paid work than would be given him in Powysland. even if he wore keeper instead of poacher; amd if he has a family he will be glad he brought them to Canada. Perhaps some friends of liberty will raise the cost of his passage, and give him the necessary sum which the immigration laws re quire him to have. I will look after him after he lands here, and see that he gets work, or any other poor fellow who is a willing worker that the gamekeepers are driving out of their native land. They need not die of starvation or turn to crime because the Severn Valley is wanted for a hunt- in6, ground for Kings and Kaisers. Welshpool has been stunted for half a century by feudal influences. It ought long ago to have been the leading town in the Severn Valley. Men like the late Mr Tom Morris would have pushed it to the front long ago, if these influences had been a thousand miles away. October 25th, 1910. JOHN ROBERTSON. l Bradford, Ontario, Canada.
