THE TWEED AND THE GALA.
[To THE EDITOR OF THE '6 SPECTATOR."
SIR, —I am glad to hear "J. L.'s" report of the purity of Tweed and Gala. If he had waded in them, instead of riding near them, his opinion might be—or, a year ago, would have been— different. Tweed then wore a greasy, faded look, like a river that has been unsuccessful in business, and Gala resembled the washings of a painter's colour-box. But all this may have been changed in-the last twelve months.—I am, Sir, &c., 1 Marloes Road, Kensington, W., May 9th. A. LANG.
