Sir,  Permit me through your column to call the immediate attention of the trustees of tbe Moliagul Cemetery and the public of Moliagul, and others whose
friends and relatives bodies are resting there, to what is stated. I understand
that a sheep-owner of Moliagul has actually put his sheep in the cemetery to graze, which I think is a scandalous shame, to allow sheep to go over the graves, eating and destroying the various plants and flowers. What are the trustees and sexton about in not looking into the circumstances of this shameful act?
Thanking you for space. — Yours &c
