TO THE XDITOBi Sm,—Your correspondent of Wednesday evening, writing under the heading of “ Slightly Exaggerated,” attempts to minimise the statements made in my letter of August 2. lam exceedingly obliged to him for explaining a circumstance which was already known to mo and to which I did not refer in my letter. But since ho speaks with an air of authority, would ho explain if that same “old man” referred to has been guilty of knocking at windows and chasing young women, etc. ; and whether he was one of the party who waylaid and abused the gentleman in School street ? Allow me to say that I am not of an imaginative turn of mind, nor am I liable to rush into print without knowing fully the facts of the case. As to the statement that “our suburb is one of the quietest and best looked after about Dunedin ” I entirely concur, as my previous letter distinctly showed and my continued residence also proves. But until your correspondent can clear up these unmistakable signs of larrikinism I must still subscribe myself Lithe and Active. Roslyn, August 8.
