These praotices are, over by niae o'clock sharrj, allpwing the majority of- the girls to. home in good time, aod any living at &, gpod> distance who wish to leave earlier tocatch a oar are allowed to do so. I have several times lyged upon the ohildren tho necessity o* burryhjg home after practice, ancV
if those referred to took forty minutes to go from Frederick street to Manse street it was contrary to advice received again and agair,. I trust the parents of ail the girls takirs.i part in the Festival practices will recognise that these reflections cist upon the inan:ig>inent are altogether misplaced, and ho|.-! they will not deter* them from attending subsequent rehearsals. The interest ai«i zeal in the practices manifested by these four hundred or tive hunnlri-il ui.rl; art; a '.rbt\t '■■■ witness, and if yo::v , orres'iumknt cntiu'. *'V tbem he tw/jld, I. am unre, h<:. more tualii.t'.i to "iicounu;>i than 'lii-oouray.j t';ioi.: iu (:;i.:r work, the result of wliicii, i hu|W, 'it- M<r.i ; many mure in Du:.-: ilu -m!'> »!ior.ly I'd-i' behold with pleasure as! !.ho — l am, etc., Arthur A.
