TO THE EDITOR. Sis,—The experience of the pafit gives me every confidence m asking you to grant me space m your correspondence column to appeal to the publio of Asbburton on behalf of Mr J. H. Jewitfc, who was burned out early this morning, and is left m a destitute condition, and m a very serious state of health. I expect it is well known to the i public of Asbburton, that for some time past Mr Jewitt has practically been aa invalid, and has been unable to attend to his bnsiness affairs, The fire has involved a considerable loss, and has left him without bedroom furniture or effects, and added to that, the necessity of removing bun from the building this morning will have a very bad effect upon his health. I feel sure that the public only require to know the facts to ensure a liberal response being made to the appeal, m order that our esteemed townsman may not; be left without those comforts which, the state of his health make a matter of necessity. The donations mentioned at foot have already been made, and I shall be pleased to reoeive farther subscriptions. Trusting the appeal will meet with a liberal response, and thanking you for the opportunity of reaching the public, I am, etc.,
Stewart, P. Ferriman, F. ... MoArthnr, Mrs.*« Bandy, Geo, m Febeiman. £ 8. a. 100 100 o 10 o 0 5 0
