THE REYNOLDSTON SCHOOL BOARD CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE CAMBRIAN."
"SIR,—A correspondent who signs himself a" Poor Ratepayer," has imported my name into the controversy going on between himself and Mr. E. J. Harries, the legally appointed Clerk to the Reynoldston School Board, and has thought proper to speak of me in a most insulting manner. I have only to say, Mr. Editor, that the public have no protection from such cowardly insiduous attacks only through the exercise of strict vigilance on the part of the managers of the Press. Had this anonymous writer put his name to his production, I should have known better how to defend myself against the base insinuations made as it is, I have simply to say, that the attack is the result of bad feeling, and that the statements made are untruthful. His reference to the religious body to which I belong is so contemptible, that I shall pass by with the silence it merits. Soliciting, as an act of justice, that you will give room for this in your next paper,
I beg to remain, Sir, Yours most respectfully, JOHN GEO. THOMAS, Chairman to the Reynoldston School Board. Hill-End, Reynoldston, July 1, 1874. "
