TO THE EDITOR. Sin,—l do not blame Mr Braithwaite for going in for cheap advertising, but I certainly blame him for making misstatements, and at the same time obtaining my signature through misrepresentation. The man that was sent to get signatures to the agreement told me that nearly every shopkeeper had signed it, and at the time I signed it I saw agreat number of signatures or I should not have signed, as I did not think it would answer.

Mr Braithwaite has stated that I was the first to sign the agreement \ if so, how came all the naimes that I saw before I signed ? Mr Braithwaite has made another misstatement in saying that I was the first to break the agreement. That is not trne. Mr Ma Hoon broke the agreement before I did, and I consider him qefte justified in doing so if his signature was obtained in the Bame manner that mine was.—l am, etc., Thoma» Esgott. Dunedin, September 12.
