ST. ASAPH. THE LATE GLAXFFRWD."âOn Monday after- noon the 13th inst., the monument recently erected to the memory of the late Rev. Glanffrwd Thomas, the Welsh preacher and literatteur, was unveiled in the presence of a large concourse of people in the graveyard of the timeworn Parish Church of Llanwono. Although the day was delightfully fine, the attendance of the friends and admirers of the deceased bard was very dis- appointing-a fact which justified the strictures passed by one or two of the speakers, who com- plained that the Welsh nation was very backward in perpetuating in some tangible form the mem- ories of some of her most distinguished sons. The monument, which has been erected by Mr William Morgan, sculptor, of Pontypridd, at a cost of about £100, is a neatly executed memorial, and stands on the slope just below the spot where many of the victims from the Ferndale Colliery explosion lie. It is of granite, and has a square base of chamfered Yorkshire stone. It stands 14ft. high, and is surrounded by railings designed in such a manner as to bear symbols of Death, Victory, Hope, and Eternity. The inscription, which is worked in letters of gold, and is sur- mounted by the Nod y Cyfria," reads'as follows; Y PARCH W. THOMAS, II GLAKFFRWD." GANWYD 17 MAWRTH, 1843. Bu FARW 3 HYDREF, 1890. Cyfodwyd y Golofn hon gan Gyfeillion ac Edmyg. wyr y Bardd. Mrs Thomas (mother of the deceased), unveiled the monument.
