TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I have read the letters of “ A Worker” and “A Dressmaker” in your paper on the above subject, and being one of the unfortunate slaves, I beg to propose that, to save further bothering, all the employes in millinery and] dressmaking shops, and, I would add, the quite as unfortunate shopgirls, hold a meeting and resolve on a platform. I think from the interest and kindness shown by the Rev. Mr Waddell and Mr Millar (secretary to the Tailoresses’ Union) either or both of these gentlemen would only be too happy to attend to counsel and advise. Surely, sir, if school children unite to obtain what they think fir, the young ladies of Dunedin can also show that they have a spirit above slavery. I would suggest the meeting be held in the hall of the Young Women’s Christian Association Rooms, if it can be obtained. —I am, etc., Another Dressmaker. Dunedin, October 17.
