THE PLUMAGE BILL.
[To THE EDITOR OF THE " SPECTATOR:1
Stn,—Lord Aberdeen's Plumage Bill, promoted by the "Plumage Bill Group," passed all its stages successfully and without a division last week with the full sympathy of the Government. There remains the House of Commons, and the Bill will go there with the Government's approval, the sanction of the House of Lords, and the eager support of the people of England. For this prosperous beginning the generous and unselfish aid given the cause by the Spectator, the Tintes, the Observer, and the Nation is largely responsible. I write this letter to express our gratitude to you.—I am, Sir, ste., H. J. MAseixonty.
