LARRIKINISM AT ROSLYN.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l did not intend to enter into any further correspondence on the above subject, but since a letter signed “ Clara,” in your issue of Monday, speaks of my “ misstatements,” “having got the wrong end of the yarn,” “being fooled,” and “listening to gossip,” the composition of which letter docs not look like that of a lady, but savors of the “old man” of a previous epistle, allow me to say that the statements which I made cannot be called misstatements until proved to be such, and this your correspondent does not attempt to do. As regards the keen scrutiny of our local constable, I have every reason to be perfectly satisfied with his vigilance, as I often pass through the Kaikorai at late hoars of the night and invariably find him oa the watch ; besides, his courteous and obliging attention to any grievance are most commendable, so that I do not wonder at “ Clara ” writing “ we are quits safe in his hand?.” The only pity is that his hands were not near enough to lay hold of the assailants of the gentleman in School street mentioned in my statements, as then the case would have come before the Court, and even “Clara” would have been satisfied that this was no misstatement. I may farther say that if no one has given the constable any information which would put him on the tracks of offenders, I am prepared to give him such information by his requesting sucli through the editor.—l am, etc., Lithe and Active, Kaikorai, August 13. [This correspondence is closed.— Ed, E.S ]
