OPINION OF THE COURT.

PER CURIAM.

view counter
1

On review of the record we are of the opinion that the record amply sustains the District Court's holding that the appellant's motion for reduction of sentence was without merit. The Order of the District Court denying the motion will be affirmed.

2

It merits observation that the District Court advised the appellant of its disposition of his motion in an "Opinion Letter". We are of the view that disposition by an "Opinion Letter" is not a desirable practice. A Memorandum Opinion would more adequately conform to established procedure.
