LIKE A ROMANCE, j Sir John's life-story; reads more like a ro- mance than the history of a life. Hie youth- ful days were enlivened with tales of his pro- genitors' greatness, their power and their valour. He heard how Roger Puleston, the tax-colleictor of Edwiard I., was hanged at the gate of Carnarvon Castleâthe castle of which his descendant was afterwards the constable. He heard too, of' the varying fortunes of his race in mediaeval days, how the Norman family became in time more Welsh than the Welsh themselves, and how many of them bore arms against thQ English under Owen Glyndwr. He heard how, in an age before the Restoration had raised the Williamses and the Wynnes to their position of "Princes in Wales," the Pules- tons had been the ruleis and the leaders of the I Welsh people; and he determined to win back for himself the position which his ancestors j had lost, and to prove to the world that the star of the house of Puleston had not set for ever. lit would be a long tale to tell the whole of Sir John's story, how for years he was en- gaged in trade in London, how he emigrated to New York and became the president of the St. David's Society in that great city, how by daring speculations in American railways he amassed much -wealth, how he returned and. was elected member for Devonport in the Tory interest in 1874, how he -was knighted in honour of the London National Eisteddfod in 1887, and how he elected to fight the Carnarvon Boroughs against Mr (Lloyd-George, and was defeated by his young antagonist. When in America he met Lincoln during the war. So impressed' was Lincoln with the young man that he appointed him as an extra aide-de-camp, and made him an honorary colonel.
