Adjudication on Male Voice…


Adjudication on Male Voice Com- petition at Haverfordwest. Dear Sir,—I herewith send you copy of what I believe to be a fairly true idea of my adjudication on your singing at Haverford- west, last Monday. li I am sure that those 'here present would have been amply repaid for the trouble of the journey, if they had heard the performance that we have just listened to, only.
