_______________

1. It is undoubtedly the case that the family circumstances which have been referred to by the applicant are very sad. They do not howeverconstitute a good reason to reduce the sentences which were imposed.

2. The applicant also referred to facts which were at variance with the agreed facts which were before the Judge, which is that whenhe collected the letters he did not think that the credit cards were included in the letters. That is contrary to the contents ofthe agreed facts. The Judge passed sentence on the basis of the facts which had been agreed.

3. There is no merit whatever in this application. The total sentence which was imposed was a merciful sentence.

4. The application for leave to appeal against sentence is dismissed.
