To the Editor of the Dailv Times,

Sik, —I called at the office to ascertain the name of the author of the enclosed advertisement. As I presume it refers to me, not knowing any other person of the same name, and as the scribbler has not put put his name to it, I will with your permission, let him have the pleasure of seeing his name in print, as I believe it has been inserted for the purpose of injuring me in the estimation of my friends here, asalso in Victoria, where I have been iu business for the last ten years. . ' . Sir, 1 believe the writer to be a person named Duuden, a laborer, who had the presumption to undertake a job of plastering on his own account, and commenced on the same as a plasterer. I having the superintendence of the job, it appears I have incurred the displeasure of my friend of the hod m not allowing him to botch the work, I having obliged him to employ proper tradesmen to do the work to my satisfaction As to the claim, the advertisement is the first intimation I have had of anything of the kind. I am sorry for having troubled you on so trifling a subject to you, but of some importance to me.—l remain, yours most obediently, ' ... Peter Griffin, Slater. Dunedin, 26th June, 1862,

The following is the advertisement alluded to :— PETER GRIFFIN is required to come and Pay his Washerwoman's Hill. Amount, 15s.
