PARCELS FOR MEN AT THE FRONT.
MRS HOLLAND'S BEPLX TO THE
MAYORESS. The Mayoress, Mre G. Armstrong, wrote to tbe Mayoress of Ohristoburoh. Mrs H. Holland, in referenda to tbe loDg time fhat elapsed before parcels sent from bere reached our men at the front. s-he received the following reply from Mre Holland : — • Dear Mrs Armstrong,—l only returned from a brief holiday last night, and found your letter awaiting me. I am afraid I cannot help you very much in your difficulty re patcels not reaching their destination. We sent a parcel early in March, and though the letter accompanying it reached its destination 1 the parcel bad not done so up to May sth, but it ma; have done bo since. It 13 very distressing that this should be so. By tbe kindness of Her Excellency Lady Liverpool, I sent eeveral cases of specially addressed parcels when I sent tbe special oaees of 3ooke and handkerchiefs, and I feel sure thete will go all right, for they are going on the hospital ship. The post office offioiale, I believe, do their beet to see ihat parcels are delivered but, of course, the movements of eoldiers are so uhc6rta ! n, which, I expect, sometimes act counts for the nondelivery. May I suggest tbat you communicate with Lady Liverpool, who. I think, will, perhaps, be able to advise you, as we ate sending oars through her.— Yonrp, etc., 3. Holland "
