TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— As one in thorough sympathy with tho appeal of Mr Coull on behalf of Mr T. Bracken kindly allow me to make a few suggestions and seek a little information. Mr Coull alludes to the intended issue of an annual at the price of either a shilling or half a crown. This strikes mo as an excellent idea. Many will be induced to purchase the annual who would otherwise contribute nothing. A large sum, I quite believe, will result, and substantial help will be rendered Mr Bracken without the idea of charity. But so far as the public are aware it is only an idea; no definite proposal is before them. I would like to suggest that Mr Coull and any others who may be working with him form a committee, definitely fix and announce the price of the proposed annual, and state where subscriptions to it may be sent. If immediate help were necessary such portion of the subscriptions as the Committee might decide upon (always retaining sufficient to cover the cost of publication) could be dispensed by them as they thought fit. I am presuming that all moneys subscribed, no matter how, will be administered by a responsible committee, —lam, etc., • Sympathiser. Dunedin, October 26.
