TYSON HODGSON.

To the Editor.

Sir, — I feel annoyed at a report of a case that appeared in the Mail. A man named Robert Hodgson was sued by Baldwin, the publican, for a drink bill of LSO. The Mail had it that the defendant was Tyson Hodgson, My name is Tyson Hodgson, and I am the only man in this district with that Christian appellation. I complained to the Mail people about tbe error, and they corrected it in a short paragraph in small type a week afterwards. I find the people in my district only see your paper, so my neighbors know nothing of the error, but some of the townspeople who read the Mail seem to think that I was the man after all. I owe Baldwin nothing at this moment, but he owes me three bob. Surely when a case like what Baldwin had against Yorkey is tried, the Mail should bo correct about names, and not injure a man’s reputation by blundering. Your report was quite correct. —I am, &c., Tyson Hodgson, Cockatoo. Ashburton, August 14.
