Mr Moon

what are the facts

Feb 25 1903

J Clayton Esq Town Clerk

Dear Sir

I desire to draw your attention to the matter of the unfair competition of the street paper stalls, some time we were given to understand that no more of these stalls would be permitted in the City, but I find there has been started lately, one on the corner of Elizabeth & Little Collins St, it has begun as a secondhand bookselling concern, but has now blossomed into a regular newsagency.

I am dearlie yours ... McGills agency per CM
