London Times: 24 Apr 1851

Two Arguments Regarding London.

THE GREAT EXHIBITION.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.

Sir, -- It is said that holders of season tickets are to enter only at one door. Will you kindly bestir your powerful self to save us from this absurdity?

How are we to take friends with us? our own families? our own children? If they enter at another door, how shall we ever meet again? Let us even appoint a rendezvous, how shall we secure ladies or children from the temptation of stopping to see pretty things whilst the poor season-ticket man stands waiting alone.

There would not seem much harm in allowing the friends of season-ticket holders to pay at that door.

Your admirer and servant,

A GREGARIOUS MAN.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.

Sir, -- Mr. Griffith has done me an injustice in your paper of Tuesday respecting Bishop Burnet's house. It is true I had fallen into the error he points out; but it is just as true that I had corrected my mistake, and if Mr. Griffith will only turn to p. 566 of , published in the June of last year, he will find there the very correction he has communicated to your readers.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,

PETER CUNNINGHAM.

Kensington, April 23.
