Devizes, 28th May 1867


It is proposed to hold the Annual Prize Shooting Meeting this year on the 30th and 31st of July next at Roundway Down Devizes

I am instructed by the Council who are anxious to arrange the Programme as early as possible to ask if they may venture to count upon your assistance in making up the list of Prizes by giving one to be competed for this year as you have so kindly done on former occasions and as the success of the association entirely depends upon such assistance the Council will feel extremely obliged for any support you will give them

I have the honor to be, Sir Your most obedt humble Servt
John A Randell
Hony Secretary
