TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —lf applying the simple remedy suggested by this evening’s correspondent “ Water ” to the pond in the Victoria Park would be of auy use, he might take it for granted the Committee would not have left it so long in such an unsightly condition. The fact is, the bottom of the pond and the Committee’s purse are in much the same condition—they will not hold in. The former will require to be well puddled or concreted to make a satisfactory job, the latter replenishing, and both will take some money. A canvass is now going on to raise funds for that and other much-needed work, and I am obliged to “Water” for this opportunity of appealing to him and any others who may be overlooked not to wait diffidently, but send their “sub.” to the undersigned, or any other member of Committee.

Should the amount now being collected reach the sum of LIOO, we can carry on for a couple of years without troubling the public further.—l am, etc., Wm. Thomson, Jun., Hon. Treasurer Victorian Park Committee. Dunedin, November 1.
