To th Edilor of the North Wales Chroniclc. Sir,—In your last publication Mr. Barber intimates his intention to reply to my letter to you of the 16th I instant, in which 1 challenged his assertion that "it was never intended that Port Penrhyn should be included within the District of the Bangor Local Board." Since that letter was written I have further investi- gated the circumstances under which Mr. Johnson, the I Surveyor, prepared the plan referred to in my letter- and I tiud that an advertisement was issued by the Board on the loth October, 1H5U, commencing thu-" Notice is hereby given, that the Local Board of Health for the District known as the Parliamentary Borough of Ban- gor,* in the County of Carnarvon, is prepared to rec ive Tenders from persons willing to contract for a Survey and Plans of the said District-such survey and plans to be made to the scale, and to be of the character re1 quired by the General Board of Health, &c., &c." On the 11th November, 1850, Mr. Johnson's Tender of t150 was accepted by the Board. A most minute and accurate survey was made in conformity witL the Orders of the General Board of Health—and at the meet ng of the Local Hoard held on the 13th January, 1852, the Plan was produced and highly approved of. That plan will speak for itself; and any ratepayer can satisfy himself by an inspection, that the Parlia- mentary Borough is distinctly shewn by a dotteddine boundary. Within that boundary is Port Penrhyn ergo, Port Penrhyn was iu tended to be within "the district" referred to in the advertisement. If Port Penrhyn was not intended to be within the District, why should the Ratepayers within the District have been put to the extrii expense of a survey and })!•>,n of it, which, to meet the requirements of the Board of Heilth, would occupy several weeks in preparing. The only explanation can be that it was (t mistake. The description in the advertisement must also have been a mistake, and the approval of t lie Plan by a Board (com- posed of gentlemen thoroughly acquainted with the lo- locality) must also have been an error. This letter is only intended as a reply to Mr. Barber's, as to the intention oi' the parties, at the time. The legal questions which will have to be decided upon documen- tary evidence of a more reliable character, will have to be determined elsewhere Yours faithfully, THOS. GOLD EDWARDS. Port Penrhyn is within the Parliamentary Borough. In order the more fully to elucidate the point in dispute, we have been requested to reproduce the following letter, which appeared in the CHUONICLE of the 18th ultimo RATING OF PORT PENRHYN. To the Editor of tlte North Wales Chronicle. Sir,—My attention has been drawn to a letter from Mr. Barber. Colonel Pennant's solicitor, which appeared in your lust paper. As it has been arranged that this question is shortly to be taken before one of the Superior Courts for deci- sion, I think it very undesirable that it should now form the subject of discussion in the public prints. I cannot, however, allow Mr. Barber's statement that Port Pen- rhyn was never intended to be included in the District," to pass unchallenged. Mr. Barber states that lie has the authority of every member of the Board at that time, with whom he has conversed on the subject, for this assertion. At a meeting of ttie Board, at which Col. Pennant, presided, a plan of the district was ordered to bo made by Mr. Johuson, the Surveyor. This was accordingly done; aud at a subsequent Board, at which Mr. Wyatt, Mr. Beaver Roberts, Mr. Vincent Williams, Mr. Hugh Roberts, and Mr. Cllas. Bickuell were preseut, the plan was produced and highly approved of." That plan is now in the office of the Local Board, and it will be found, upon inspection, to include Port Pen- rhyn within the District. I am, Sir, Your faithful Servant, Denbigh, :II¡\.l'ch 16, 1863. THOS. GOLD EDWARDS. Denbigh, March 16,1865. TH08. GOLD EL)WA.ItDg.
