I enclose a cutting from the SA New. (I don't know by whom its
4: written) I hear you are on the committee which reports on the matter.
Surely my dear friend will stand with those who do not wish to see a
7: monopoly made complete & crushing. This little ?pavilion is splendidly
8: unreadable. I know for I go two or three times a week. You can get
9: nothing fit to eat or drink at the other place. To put us entirely in
10: the hands of the big companies would be a public injury.
If I were well enough I would come to see you about it. To sell the
13: ?pavilion to the Companies would be quite unworthy of our government,
14: when even the Jameson rule did not do it. I hope you share my view. If
15: not please don't act hastily. Think it over again.
The cutting referred to is no longer attached.
