ANOTHER GRATIFYING TESTIMON- IAL TO M a HOOKE. On Thursday Opening a largely attended meeting was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Mostyn, in order to recognize the services ren- dered by the Rev. D. Burford Hooke, of Rhyl, in connection with the distress at Mostyn. The Rev. Dr. Pan Jones presided, and the following gentlemen took part in the pro- ceedings:-Revs. W. Prothero, W. E. Jenkins, Messrs T. Pownall, Ellis, Valentine Williams, Hugh Williams, and T. W. Hodge. It was stated that as a result of the effort nearly 2000 meals had been provided for the poor children of the parish, and for two months re- lief in kind had been provided weekly for more; than a hundred persons or families. In the course of the evening an address beautifully illuminated and framed was presented, of which. the following is a copy :â Yn yr ing, goreu yw'r car.(In distress, the friend excels). Presented to the Rev. D. Burford Hooke, of Rhyl, in recognition of his practical sympathy and timely benevolence during the distress at Mostyn. Whilst render- ing all the glory to God for the work accom- plished, we desire to express our sincere and heartfelt thanks for the successful issue of your efforts to relieve human suffering. We are also thankful for your past career, which has been signal for devotion and zeal in uphold. ing principles based upon the common brother- hood, and rendering to your country-men faithful interpretation of Welsh Nationality. As a servant of Christ you have specially min- istered to the spiritual life of Churches, yon have strengthened the bond of fraternal sym- pathy, and through your instrumentality, the agencies for extending the kingdom of our Lord have been brought into united effort. We pray that on your removal from Wales to the Metropolis, you and yours may enjoy a long life of eminent lIsefulness and true felicity. Signed on behalf of the Free Churches of Mostyn, April 19th, 1888, E. PAN JONES, M.A., Ph.D., Independent Minister; JOHN HUGHES, Wesleyan Method- ist VALENTINE WILLIAMS, Calvinistic Meth- odist W. PROTHERO, Congregational Minister. Mr Hooke feelingly replied. At the close, a procession of about 200 persons escorted Mr and Mrs Hooke to the Railway Station, and the train steamed off amid the many manifesta- tions of good will. We may add that the ad- dres will be on view at Mr Trehearn's, for the convenience of Rhyl friends who would wish to see it.
