MIDDLE PRESENTATION.âThe Rev. E. Montford Jones having lately been appointed to the rectory of Llanmerewig, Montgomeryshire, the prtrishoners of Middle, the curacy of which parish he has held for nearly six years, determined that he should not leave them without bearing away with him a substantial token of their regard and esteem. Accordingly a committee was appointed, under the presidency of Mr. D. F. Atcherley, for the purpose of carrying into effect their wishes. Some of the committee volunteered their services to collect the necessary subscriptions, and in a short time a considerable sum was provided, which was laid out in the purchase of a very handsome tea service of antique silver. One of the pieces bore the following inscrip- tion:â"Presented, January 8th, 1879, to the Rev. E. Montford Jones, on his resignation of the curacy of Middle, to which he was ordained March 9, 1873." The presentation was made by Mr. D. F. Atcherley, who spoke in eulogistic terms of Mr. Jones's good qualities, and expressed the general regret of the parishioners at parting with him. The Rev. G. H. Egertun also spoke in a feeling manner of the regret which he and the parishioners felt at parting withjMr. Jones whom he had always found to be a most energetic co-worker' for nearly six years, and who took the greatest interest in the spiritual welfare of all classes in the parish.âMr. W. H. Bickerton then, on behalf of the adult members of the Middle Church Choir, presented Mr. Jones with a handsomely-bound copy of Hymns Ancient and Modem, with tunes, in which the following inscription was written :â" Presented to the Rev. E. Montford Jones, on his resigning the curacy of Middle, by the adult members of the Middle Church Choir, as a slight token of esteem and of their appreciation of his endeavours to improve the efficiency of the choir." Attached were the signatures of the members of the choir. Mr. Jones, in responding, thanked the parishioners heartily for their handsome present, and also the choir, ana said he should never forget the happy days he had spent among them, and the uniform kindness which aU had shown towards him. The tea service and book would b" to him plea- sant mementoes of the past, and if any of the Middle people happened to come to Llanmerewig he should be happy to extend to them his hospitality.
