DEATH OF MISS OLIVE TALBOT. THE END OF A LIFE OF SUFFERING- SAD LOSS TO THE CHURCH IN WALES. A PRINCELY DONOR TAKEN AWAY. The Chuich at Wales axe sustained one of the greatest ioBtie- it. has had during the past century by the death on Saturday* evening of MLaS Olive TaJbot, third and youngc-at daughter of the late Mr. (. R. M. Tiubot, M.r., of Mar gam Park, and father of the House of Commons. Miss Olive Talbot would have been 52 years of :tge to-day For the patjt twenty year3 she has been an intense sufferer from spinal and other complaints, which completely invalided her, and kept her to her London house, 3, Cavendish-square. In fact, it is over twenty years since ebe had been to her birthplaceâMar gam Parkâand it must have been very distressing to her upon the death of her late lamented father that she could not, be prt#ent at the funeral. Miss Olive Talbot was of a»i exceedingly amiable tempera- ment, and was generous to a fault. In htr eariy days at Margam she u.l to devote the whole of her spare time in going about tlif neighbourhood of Margam alone with a basket of dainties on her atrm, ministering to the wants of the eick and needy, and many of her deeds of kindness will rema-n untold, as whatsoever she did iÃt. was done iii the most unobtrusive manner. Mi»3 Oliv? also, whilst living- at Margam, used to take tne most lively interest in fJI matters relating to the welfare of the Church. The Stttulav School had a special attraction for her, and aiao the ohcir. At all the concerts hel<i at Maigam she took always an aotive part. But it was a geacrous donor to the Church that Misa Talbot's name* will be enrolletl on the 1,¡ageJ of the history of the Welsh Church. Ever since she oame into possession of a. hand- some income Wt her by her fattier (and which, by the way, now reverts to Miss Talbot, Marion Park), her munificent* had no bounds. It can saiely be said that no appeal for help, either towards the erection of new or the restoration or old churches, or the endowment nf poor livings, but met with a heartr response from her. We may mention a few of the new chnrchea erected at her sole expense, viz., G&rth mid Spolter,'Mmwtfg; Abenrwvnii; St. Theodore's. Kenfig Kill; Liangynwyd. Llan- itCtnor: Liajnlyfodwg, and Nicholaaton (Gover). She also assiisted her aister, Miss Taliiot. Margam Park. in the restora- tion of several churches in the Diio- (lese of Llandaff. Many vi.iars and curates in Wales were al.-o the recipitnta of gift« of money from lier hands. For many years past she was attended by the family phyaioian, Dr. Rintrer, of London, who ren- ttoad all that meduxil aid could do to alleviate her sufferings, but death toiik place in H:" pre- wnee of her gister, Mrs. Fletoher, of Saitouu Park. Seotifwid. The funeral obsequies will take place at Margam, but v yet the date has not been fix-d. We aiv glad to be able to 3tatri that Mio;ø Talbot's (Afargami iic-alfch is much improved, and it is hoped that the death of her iiistcr will not furtht impair it.
