MAJORITY OF MR. DAVID PHJNNANT NANTLLYS. The heir of Nantllys attains his majority on the 16th prox and the leading parishioners of Tremeirchion and Bodfary have taken steps to honour the house of Pennant-a name of ancient lineage-on the auspicious occasion. Mr P. p, Pennant and his family are univer- sally respected, not only in their own town and adioining parish, but throughout Flintshire, to say the least. As a magistrate, ex-officio way- warden, and poor law guardian, Mr Pennant is rightly regarded as one of the best men in the county. The unflagging interest he takes in affairs pertaining to matters of local importance, shows his deep concern for the welfare of his neighbours. Therefore, it is no wonder that the parishes (Bodfary and Tremeirchion) com- pete in friendly rivalry to celebrate the coming of nge of his son, Mr David Pennant, in a fitting manner. Last week an informal meet- ing of friends and neighbours was held, and which resulted in the convening of a general meeting, held on Tuesday evening, at the Ffynnon Beuno Inn, Tremeirchion. There were present at the public meeting :âThe Rev. Canon Browne (Bodfary), Rev. E. J- Edwards (Tremeirchion), Messrs Edwin Morgan, J.P., John Roberts (Geinas), Wm. Jones (Nant- cwilym), Roberts (Hendre1, Rowland (The Warren), Hughes (Adwywynt), R. Lloyd (Ffynnon Beuno), Rees (schoolmaster)^ D. Williams (county surveyor), Thos. Matthews (Bryn Ibbot), R. Davies (Bodfary), John Roberts (Glyn), Isaac Jones (smithy), W. Owen (Bryn), W. Roberts (Bodfary Schools), &c. Mr E. Morgan explained the object of the meeting, and proposed that Col. Mesham, an old friend of the Pennant family and of them all, should be appointed* chairman.âThe Rev. Canon Browne seconded the motion, but said that inasmuch as Col. Mesham was not present he would propose that Mr Morgan be appointed vice-chairman, and asked to preside at that meeting.âThis was unanimously agreed to. In taking the chair Mr Morgan referred to the depression in the country, and remarked that as there were several demands upon the purses of the people they must not expect large contributions. All who would subscribe would no doubt give as much as they could, and whether the amount was large or small they I would all join to express their esteem and respect for the house of Pennant (cheers). A conversation ensued as to the mode pro- posed to be adopted for the. celebration. Canon Browne was strongly in favour of having separate demonstrations in Bodfary and in Tremeirchion. In fact he had made up his mind to give the school children of Bodfary a treat at his own expense, but if the committee liked to supplement it by a few prizes for little athletic games, and so on, well and good.âThe Chairman observed that that would make two affairs of it. He was under the impression that it was decided the parishes should amalgam. ate. They might have two demonstrations governed by one committee, elected from the two parishes.âMr Browne did not think that could be done. Perhaps Bodfary would want one thing and Tremeirchion would not care for it. The taste of the Tremeirchion people might be sufficiently refined to go in for sack and donkey races (laughter), but they would not have such inhumanities at Bodfary (laugh- ter)âMr Morgan said that it had been suggest- ed to make arrangements to give tea to the children of both parishes at the Nantllys farm yard, and to have general rejoicings after- wards.âMr Browne had made up his mind to confine the Bodfary demonstration to Bodfary. âTo bring the matter to a point, Mr Robert Lloyd proposed that one general fund be formed for the purpose of celebrating the event at the two parishes. This was seconded and carried unanimously. On the motion of Mr John Roberts (Geinas) it was resolved to apply local subscriptions only to defray the costs of tea parties to the children, and the rejoicings. Outside subscriptions, supplemented by any balance that might remain after defraying the costs of the festivities, to be used for making a suitable presentation to Mr David Pennant to mark his coming of age.-A committee was then formed to carry out the arrangements, with Mr 1 Mr John Roberts (Geinas) and Mr Wm. Owen (Bryn) as treasurers, and Mr Robt. Lloyd as secretary.
