LORD BRYCE AND LLANGOLLEN I ALIEN. A LETTER THAT DEMANDS RESPECT. Last week we printed a letter from Mr. N. Weber, residing at Tywynfa," Llangollen, one of those who received an anonymous letter, signed 11 The Inhabitants of Llangollen," warn- ing him to leave the towa before nine o'clock on the night of the 12th inst. Mr. Weber, a Ger- man by birth, has resided nearly all his life in England and is married to a Welsh lady. He is solo clarionet player of the Hand ot the Lothian and Border Horse Yeomanry, Edinburgh, and was Sergeant of the 3rd Lancashire Fusiliers, at Bury, for many years, having his discharge papers, with "good conduct." Mrs. Weber has just received the following letter from Lord Bryce, dated from the House of Lords :— Dear Madam,—In reply to your letter, all I know is that the order for internments has gone out; but I should hope, as I said in the debate in Parlia- ment, that the War Office authorities released your husband after enquiry and, as he had good testi- monials as to his character and career, those who were charged with the examination of aliens would not direct him to be again interned but leave him to live at Llangollen with you. I was fully satis- fied that he should be allowed his freedom and, if it would help vou or him to send this letter to the I authorities when he has to be examined, you or he may shew it and may say that I shall be willing to make a statement, if desired, on his behalf. Trust- ing that your wishes will not be disappointed.— I Faithfully yours, BRYCE.
