10 SEPTEMBER 1910, Page 18


SIR,—Having read the letters re pit ponies in your issue of August 27th, I am writing to say I entirely corroborate all that is said on the subject. Living as I do in a mining district, I have often had first-hand information of many instances of cruelty practised ignorantly on our climb friends underground. All who love animals and know the facts feel it is a crying evil, and I sincerely hope that measures will soon be taken to give the

Pit pony a better am, Sir, he, Welbeck, Worksop.

[We cannot print any more letters on this subject. —En. Specteter.]
