MR. R. M. MARTIN V. PRAHRAN PENNY READINGS. To the Editor of the Telegraph. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 September 1867

MR. R. M. MARTIN V. PRAHRAN PENNY READINGS. To the Editor of the Telegraph. Sir,--Mr. Martin's valedictory address in your last week's issue respecting the committee of the Mechanics' Institute and his connexion with the penny readings movement demands a few words by. way of reply. It is true that he was elected a member of the 0sonlittee of the institute last November, but he is clearly in error when he says that it was at his instigation the second course of penny read ings was commenced. Another member of com mittee, and not Mr. Martin, was the gentleman who suggested the matter immediately after the last annual meeting of members. It is always highly amusing to notice the un blushing manner in which Mr. It. M. Martin seeks every opportunity to disparage anid ignore the efforts of everybody except himself, and returns "his best thanks to those ladies and gentlemen, far and near, who have given him their hearty support," printed circulars having at the same time been sent to all l...
