. TO THE EDITOR. . Sir, —Referring to Mr Timson'a letter, allow me to Bay that his name was not mentioned at the first meeting called to form our new Choral Society; arid at the adjourned meeting (which ,took place on my amendment) his name was not mentioned as a promoter of the society. The result of the!ot in favor of Mr Coombs therefore involves no injustice to Mr Timson so far as members generally are concerned. It was recently mentioned that the choirs of the City Presbyterian Churches had agreed to perform ' The Messiah' this year, hut I understand the agreement is "fallen from." Now, if the Committee of the Choral Society take a vote by show of hands or otherwise, I think the result should bo in favor of performing ' The Messiah ' instead of the work in hand (' Elijah ') al Christmastide. Tho latter oratorio has been artistically (.uid often) produced here since the notable success attained by the late Mr G. R. West, as conductor of tho old society, while Mr A. J. Towsey was visiting the Homo Countiy. At our last meeting I suggested that four ladies (two sopranos and two altos) should be members of the Committee, and as the suggestion was endorsed by the oresideut (Hon. R. Oliver) I hope it will be' adopted when the society's rules are printed.—l am etc., W. A. W. Wathbn. Dunedin, September 24.
