to Tin: editor. ! Sir,- It will certainly be rather surpris--1 ing to the public generally to know that it is intended to give only 23 per rent, of the above collection to the distrusted Belgian-, j Surely our institutes iieie can deny tin rnI selves this year, as the majority of individuals have dune: and I say that the cub j lection would not have been so large if | the public thought that such a small proj portion was going to be handed over to ; our gallant and distressed Allies. It j would be better and more as things should j be it the local institutes denied themselves : for this year, and took the 25 per cent ■ and donated the balance for the relief of j those who really need it. Several yeari ago our hospitals, etc., never bail a Satur- ! day collection. How did they manage ] then? Surely they can take the smaller j amount this year, and the public would bo i better satisfied. lam afraid if (hey do ns j they say they intend to do that next year’s t hospital collection will be. a. very poor 1 affair. Moping someone else will -date I their opinions on this matter—l am. etc . ) S.A.B. j December 5.
