TO THE EDITOII. Sir, — In reply to " Boz," my letter contains no complaint of hardship. The '" some years " in which the Choirs' Union had given the ' Messiah ' amount to two, when the Choral Society had practically ceased to exist. Ido not expect tho union to stand down, but tried to show why they should not stand up. Now to clear up my obscurity. I do not know the feeling of the committee, but personally should be sorry to see the union join us, unless they did so at once, and their members submitted themselves to a strict test. The public will not be " denied their right," because we will give it to them on the Isth prox., and the members of the union will servo the best interests of music by taking tickets and getting their friends to do likewise. —I am, etc., Wm. Thomson. November 20.
