THE WELSH IN LONDON. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. J The members of the newiy-formed Camb Briton Society met on Tuesday evening at th6 Devonshire House Hotel to elect officers and to consider matters of detail. After a hot discus' sion, it was decided that the weekly meetings of the society shall be held at the Cannon-street Hotel. The attractions of the meetings, which will be devoted principally to the reading of papers and debates thereon, are to be increased by the admission of light refreshments and per' mission to smoke. An attempt to introduce alcoholic drinks was frustrated by the strenuouj opposition of the temperance party. The elec' tion of officers proceeded by nomination and ballot. Dr. Morgan Davies, of the Londoi1 Hospital, was appointed president, and Mg Robert Parry, B.A., son of the Rev. Griffitb Parry, Aberystwith, vice-president; for the first session- Mr Maurice Williams, M.R.C.S., Finsbiiry-square, was elected treasurer, and Mt T. J. Davies, B.A., son of the Rev. Griffith Davies, of Cardigan, was appointed honorarj secretary. The first general meeting of the society will be held on the 23rd instant. On Wednesday evening a lrge number of the, Welsh poor of the East End. was treated to a tea at the Zion Schoolroom, "techapel. A public meeting was afterw»rti?, held, Mr H. Lloyd Hughes in the chair.. Addresses were delivered by several gentlei»0p^nte^ested in Welsh mission work in London »nd *he Welsh missionaiies. Mrs Watts Hughes and her pupils added to the interest of the evening by contributing severalt songs. Considerable satisfaction is expressed i London Welsh circles at the fact that! Professor Rhys has been selected to give thai Hibbert Lectures for 1885. The subject chosen, viz., is also one of the greatest intent to Welsh people. "fhe Rev. John Evans (Eglwysbach) has just completed the publication of the first volume of sermons preached by him at the City Road Chapel. The volume contains twelve discourses 011, amongst other subjects, the death of Hiraethog and of the Duke of Albany, on the Temperance question, and on Religious reform as a political good." I am given to understand that the Welsh Wesleyans are making strenuous efforts to signalise the stay of Mr Evans amongst them 1:>1'. completing the payment of the debt yvt on tiib chapsl duriug the period of his ministration in London. j Prilltcél and Published by UI< iJro;a-.etori,i at their Steam Priutiu Works,76aad76,St. Mary-stree;, and Weatgate.stKftfr in the town of Cardiff in th* Cwaosy or GiamorgM I
