TO THE EDITOR. Sm,—l am again compelled through the medium of your columns to vindicate the position of the! committee of management for the above, and also of the Otago Sunday School Union. The best arrangements that can be made have been made for the carrying out of these rehearsals. The Saturday afternoon proposals made by your correspondent “ MarthaJ” were considered some time ago, but were found for several reasons to bo altogether impracticable for regular practice. A great number of those who constitute the choir have not the Saturday afternoons free, as they have passed the “school ” stage, and cannot even be termed “children.” I wish most emphatically to refute the imputation contained in your correspondent’s remarks about the girls " cultivating a larrikin spirit through being out alone at night.” Few, if any of them, either come or go alone to the practices; from north, south, east, west, or central they will be seen in groups of half dozensand dozens, etc., always in company of their friends and fellow Sunday school scholars; they wait for one another either'going or coming to the practices. Thus they virtually see one another home, and this fact at onces proves your correspondent’s aspersions to he incorrect. Again, I know that the girls do not neglect their home lessons to attend these practices. They are too anxious to take part in the festivals to run the risk of being detained therefrom by neglecting their home duties. The importance of this I have several times impressed upon them. I ask the parents of the girls interested in this matter not to allow themselves to be prejudiced by outsiders who write in total ignorance of the facts. The choir as a whole is progressing moat favorably, and if allowed to go on unmolested these girls will give a good account of themselves at the Exhibition. I

am. etc., Arthur A, .Morgan. King street, September 24.
