THE "EXPRESS" AND THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL. Thanks from the County Member, To THE EDITOR OF THE MONTGOMERYSHIRH EXPRESS AND RADNOR TIKES." Sir,—The Executive Committee in con- nection with the above memorial have been informed that you have opened a fund for subscribers to the memorial, and the com- mittee desire to thank you very cordially for your valuable support. Similar action has been taken by other newspapers, and various funds have been started locally in different parts of Wales. In addition, dona- tions are being sent direct to me from time to time. As honorary treasurer of the gen- eral fund, it is essential that I should keep in close touch with the business of collec- tion, and it is also important that the pub- lie should be kept informed weekly of the progress of the fund. The Finance Committee have decided to invest the memorial fund from time to- time in trust securities, and suggest that the sums received by you should be paid to me weekly, so that the committee may be enabled to utilise such sums to the best possible advantage. It will, of course, lie possible for sub- scribers to send their promises or donations either to me direct or to a newspaper, or to other collecting agencies, but in any case- we propose that I should keep separate and distinct lists of the amounts collected or promised from each county or county bor- ough. This arrangement is intended for the> purposes of information and comparison only. I shall, therefore, classify all prom- ises and donations received by me accord- ing to the counties or county boroughs from which they come, and include all anony- mous donations in a separate class. In addition to this classification. I shall make a point showing in the list, for each, county or county borough exactly what promises and donations have been obtained by each newspapers or other collecting agency. When the campaign fund is closed,, the whole list of all subscribers will be pub- lished. Definite steps are now being taken by the Executive Committee in the important work of organising the collection of funds through- out the whole of Wales and Monmouth- shire. As a first step, the Executive Com- mittee are endeavouring to arrange public meetings to be called by the Lords Lieuten- ant in all the counties. The objects of these meetings are, first. to bring home to the public the necessity for an active cam- paign, and, secondly, to secure the ap- pointment of a strong and representative county committee with an honorary secre- tary. The primary duty of each committee will be to secure a systematic and thorough can- vass of the whole county by the appoint- ment of local collectors in every town, vil- lage, or district, to whom receipt books will be issued. The precise organisation of this, work of collection will be left to the county committee, who will be well acquainted with the particular circumstances of their own county. It is, however, hoped that as great degree of uniformity as possible will be obtained. The Executive Committee desire me t express their sincere appreciation of the valuable assistance which you have given to this movement, and they earnestly hope that you will continue to help it on in every possible way. The committee will be glad if you can adopt. the proposals made in the first part of this letter, and publish this letter in the next issue of your paper.— Believe me to be, yours faithfully, DAVID DAVIES.
