MR. THOMAS WILLIAMS' TESTIMONIAL. To the Editor of the Pontypridd Chroniclt. SIR,â Your inserting the following would not only gratify numberless people but also do your part in encouraging those who ought to have their good and worthy actions recognised. The individual here alluded to is one aniongst the same, viz Mr Thomas Williams, overman of the Great Western Colliery. On the let of January, 1881, a vast concourse of his friends and a number of highly respectable gentlemen desiring to show approval of true merit being recognised, met in the the long room of the Holly Bush Arms, Hopkina- town, where Mr Williams had to meet them, to te- ceive a testimonial, in the shape of a witchg a chain, with a handsome appendage, all gold, and a beau. tiful puise also a frame, containing that whioh was more valuable than the other articles, thongh they were overE5O, that, as compared with the other, fell into utter insignificance; yes, the written evi- dence cf his having so meritoriously done his daty, far outstripped any pecuniary demonstration. Edwin Randal, Esq. presided at the meeting; the vice.chair was occupied by Mr Phillips. Mr John Thomas occupied the most prominent part. After several had addressed the meeting, and been much cheered, Dr. Leokie also addressed the meet- ing, in English, and was applauded. The meeting was enlivened by Ap Tavonwy, showing how dex- terously he made the pianoforte cheer all, and harmoniously accompany those who sang, the first of whom was Mr D. Jenkins, then Eos Llan, T, Jenkins, Eos Havod, U. G. Hughes, young Phillips, and Dan. Gronwy, all of whom were heartily cheered. Recitations by Ap llhydderch and Gwilym Morgan, really ell worthy of being heard, and were well cheered. The meeting was also addressed by Mr H. Mills. in a humourous and pleasant style; a few words by W. ap Gwilyn, and a line or two, sung in Spanish, but, of course, but little understood-yet it was a little novelty. Let it suffice to say, that the vast concourse heartily enjoyed themselves, and were pleased to see Mr Prosser presenting the gift and testimonial to Mr Thomas Williams. Without taking up more of your valuable space, let me pnbscribe myself as a GALENSEANO.
