To the Editor of the Express. gj rt| —Will you kindly inform me whothor the Mr Henry Dodson who took a prominent part at an informal meeting of creditors held at the Supreme Court m Blenheim on Wednesday last, the 18th instant at two o'clock m the afternoon (or as soon after as the creditors ooild conveniently see their way to get together) is the Mayor of this town (Blenheim) and also its member for Parliament? One of the members of your staff, who, I am told, was there at the meeting mentioned above, will doubtless recollect that Mr Henry Dodson was good enough to inform those present on being politely asked by me as to who he was, and for the ple&surn of his name, that " he was a broken down lawyer m England, and could not get bis living there, and that he had come out to' collect other people's debts," or words to that effect so far as 1 can remember, and I think I am not fai onti Being an utter stranger to the Colony, as I am, if you answer m the affirmative, I hereby publicly beg to thank Mr tlenry Dodson fot his extreme civility, Bnd if I may be allowed at the same time, to congratulate him npon the honorable positions he holds. The crash' ing'effeot of Mr Henry Dodson's attempted wit on the occasion so far overcame me ai to render it absolutely necessary foi me to spend the intervening day at i friend's house near Morgan's Crack, other wise, Mr Editor, I would have brought forward this enquiry earlier. — I have, etc., John S. Harris, Agent and Manager for Messrs Greatrez and Co. Club Hotel, Blenheim, April 20, 1883
