to thb ]si>rroi(. Sib,—Being on a visit to Ashburton and having an invitation to be present at a rehearsal of " Patience," which is to be given by the Ashburton Amateur Operatic Company, I think it only.just to state, that as one who has witnessed tho pertorn.'ance of this opera m several of the leading cities of New Zealand and also m England, I | was highly pleased with tho able ttnd spirited ■way m which the Ashburton amateurs performed their parts. I consider, with the few weeks rehearsal previous to the performance, the principal parts will be sustained equal to anything which has been produced m the colony, and that the choruse3 will be a musical treat not often surpassed by our leading societies. The amateurs have undertaken a very pretty and enjoyable, but at the same time difficult Opera, which judgiug from their advanced stage of proficiency and with continued constant attendance at rehearsals will prove a great success. They are deserving of every encouragement and patronage which I sincerely hope will be freely showered upon them.^-I am, etc., H. J. Ingle.
