BRITAIN AND BELGIUM FUND
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Failing to note that the public meet, ing re above was oalled for an earlier hour of tho evening than usual, I unfortunately missed the lectnrer's address, but was in time to catch Mr Bcucb'b practical suggestion, that, instead of a single present effort, all , should, to the beet of their ability, contribute over the period of stress. Tuesday's cables ! told us that from fifty to sixty thousand 1 destitute from France and Belgium would land in England in ten days' time. Many thousands had previously found their wny over, whilst it is certain that for months to come thousands will follow. In addition to her owa destitute Britain will thu» have to support probably a hundred thousand refugees for the nest cix months. It ia desirable, therefore, that wo should contribute monthly, say, for that period. This will cover the bitter northern winter, and run well into spring, when work may be looked tor. not only in the field, but in repairing the ravages of war.-—I am, etc., W HENNING.
