10 THE EDITOR.
Sir. I noticed with pleasure Mr T. Coull’s letter in your issue of Saturday, and was glad to see that someone had at last taken the matter up with a feeling of patriotism. It would indeed lie a shame to throw away this prominent and central piece of ground when it can so easily be formed into a green, and the Council should consider the matter thoroughly before they do anything definite. You have no doubt heard the interesting narrative about the Glasgow Green which Mr Coull mentioned. A Glasgow resident on a visit to Dundee, while being shown round the city by Lis friend, seemed to be in doubt as to something, and when he had surveyed all the beauties of the place he said to his friend: “Butwhaur’s your green?” "Green,” said the Dundee man, “we have nae green 1” upon which the Glasgow man, with a look of amazement, exclaimed; “ Then whaur on earth do ye gang to fecht,” Of course Ido not mean to infer from this that it is highly necessary that we should have a green whereon to " feoht,’’ nor do I believe in fighting ; but I do think that the Triangle, with a very little expenditure, could easily be converted into a capital recreation ground—a place for our lads to spend the luncheon hour on, if nothing more. —l am, etc., Green.
