TO THE EDITOR, Sib,— Permit me, on behalf of the Committee, to thank your correspondent “ Water ” for his suggestions. It is always gratifying to those who are doing their best to carry out this work to find others taking an intelligent and kindly interest in it. Your correspondent will be pleased to know that the executive intend carrying out improvements very much on the lines suggested by him. To do this and other necessary things, such as pruning trees, making paths, providing more seats, and generally carrying out improvements, so as to ensure ultimate success, the Committee are just now raising LIOO by subscription, which it is believed will be sufficient to carry on the work for the next two years. The collectors have succeeded during the past few days iu getting three-fourths of this amount, and. will be glad to receive subscriptions (either large or small) from all who sympathise with the beautifying of the Town Belt. I may say that the Committee are most anxious to make the park as presentable as possible by the time the Exhibition is in full swing.— l am, etc., Thomas Shown, Chairman of Committee. Dunedin, November 1.
