To the editor of the Marlborough Times:
Sir - can you inform me or any of your numerous correspondents, how it is that the above roads are allowed to be in such a disgraceful state of repair? The roads from Ram Alley & Wootton Rivers & Easton reflect great discredit upon the parties responsible. Now that the new Highway Act is in force there is no reason for having roads which no person can drive upon without danger to their horses and risk to their own lives.
I am, Sir, yours obediently, A TRAVELLER
