A NORTHAMPTON NESTOR.
More About Moffitt.
A wild and whirling wowser (we don't exactly know what a wowser is, but it seems a suitable word) writes to
the SUNDAY TIMES from God-and-Gov- ernment-forsaken Northampton, to use his own phrase. In the main his letter is a mere reiteration of one received from a person named Gibson last week, in defence of Dr. Moffitt and of the movement for that officer's reten- tion. The gist of the epistle of "Faustus" — is how this correspon- dent signs himself — is (1) that Nor- thampton deserves a resident medical officer, (2) that it was Captain "Sam" Mitchell who really secured the boon from Government and not Nanson at all, (3) that Nanson is a two-faced humbug or words to that effect, (4)
that Dr. Moffitt is a kind and chari-
table man who never presses poor patients for payment, (5) that Nor- thampton means to hang on to him, and (6) that our correspondent who said that the meeting to have Moffit retained was an unrepresentative one is several kinds of a liar. We have a sneaking regard for "Faustus" be- cause, though somewhat irrelevent and apparently excited unnecessarily, he
doesn't beat about the bush.
