TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADQERTISEL- ; Sir,--Thec Diamond Creek. coxres pondent of your contemporary takes. exception to the supposed action of mine in connection with'the meeting held at Greensborough. I would like to state the position As soon as I had intended to retire, recognising thatI re presented the whole of the riding, I wrote to the president of the Diamond Creek Progress Society at the same time that I did to the Greensborough society. In addition I communicated .by telephone with the president, and up to the present I have received no acknowledgment of my letter advising that I had resigned The meeting was convened by the Greensborougb Pro gress Society, and I had nothing to do with it. If there is any feeling in the matter the fault does not lie with me, but evidently with the officers of the Diamond Creek Progress Society. Yours, &c.; A. H. PRIOE. Greensborough, Nov. 15.
