Sir,—The tide of interest excited by your invaluable articles on the 24th seems this day to have risen rather than to have abated; and I must again throw myself upon your kind indulgence to respond to the request of our numerous kind donors for an acknowledgement of their kindness in The Times—a speaking tribute to your resistless appeal.

I am, Sir, yours ever most gratefully and respectfully,

SAMUEL TAWELL, Hon. Sec.
