I wish to thanik all the neighbours that have been so hind to me in this, my hour of need, and bitter jiumiliation. What my boys earn and what they give their mother are two different things. as every mother knows. Boys must have something tor themselves; but they are good lads anmd I hope and trust I will ne ver be in such a position again. Thankini g you for the prominence you have given the mat ter.-Yours, etc., M[. WILLIAMS.
