THE PRINCE OF WALES’S BIRTHDAY.
TO THE EDITOR Sir, —The 9th of November, the .anniversary of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales’s Birthday, being the first holiday of the season, is eagerly looked forward to for a lengthy period by the Dunedin citizens; and as it falls this year on Saturday it is to be sincerely hoped that all uncertainty as to whether it is to be hold on the Saturday or following Monday be removed at ouce, in order to ensure unanimity in the matter. Certain it is that the retailers in town will emphatically refuse to close on Saturday, but would doubtless have no objection whatever to close on the Monday. Those interested should therefore move in the matter without delay, as if left till say two or three days prior to the 9 th we shall find one-half the City at business and one-half enjoying themselves on both Saturday and Monday, and the holiday thus practically spoilt.—l am, etc., W.M.B. Dunedin, October 16.
