ENGLISH AS SHE IS WROTE.

From time to time we see some most amusing letters from foreign motorists, but we think the plum is one which came recently from Budapest in reference to a Velocette success there. Here are its most snappy portions :

“Dear Sirs,—Confirming your favour of the 23rd inst. I trust the jury here shall also deliberate into our benefit.

“Since you have learned by my telm., that my rider Mr. Hummel, succeeded to win the first place on the Internationalen Hungarian Touring Race for Velocity and not as I wrongly wired, for Reliability. ” This Race involves a Touring of 700 km. on a soil dissected by hills and by plains—this interlaced sectors being separately judged—and Hummel proved with Velocette as victorious in ascending the mountainous parts as in the unequalled rapidity in traversing the plain. By this a new record was created—My rider managed his cours so cleverly as to extract and to expose before the public all the good qualities of Velocette which engine justified in his accomplishment all cares

of his producers.—I hope and trust this leaf of honour will be a valuable addition in the history, and that the moral gain may be soon averted into the palpable success of an enlarged scale of trade ‘in Velocette’. . . . Kindly consider from your part this country too, where besides glory a good market may be won. I hope the Vienna Gentleman will insinuate the same. . . .”
