MADOC AND AMERICA. ¡ 2 Sirt,- I ask your permission to lay a few remarks before you and your numerous readers with regard to the above. I am the second person in this matter, the first being the Hon. Thomas L. James, of New York City. He took with him a shorthand clerk to record all elates, places, and persons, and the research cost him thousands of dollars. After six months searching all the libraries in different States, buying all diaries and manuscripts that money could get, oil his return home he had his researches printed in almost all the New York newspapers. It was one of these articles that I reproduced the substance of in Welsh. Mr. Thomas L. James was born at Tredegar 67 years ago his parent* emigrated to America when he was 12 months old he was educated at the highest grade of colleges in the United States, and has attained a very high standard as a literary scholar. Mr. Jame3 always held our fellow townsman, the late Mr. Thomas Stephens, in the highest esteem, and he has studied Mr. Stephens' essay, and knows Mr. Stephens' opinion in reference to the first discoverer of America. Mr. James, however, has some later dates than Mr. Stephens has in his essay. Nobody can condemn Madoc because he did not return to his native land and report iiis discoveries. Where is the history that has been kept of our nation as Welsh ? Where are our dates places, and persons ? Not to be had but of a late period. So wo cannot blame one individual that went away in a great excitement from England and never returned. Why, the whole nation is under the same condemnation. No one can build a house of reason in this nineteenth c mtury that he can boast much of to defend his searches and discoveries. What about Madoc in the 12th century before the dark ages a little ? Where was the paper to keep records of things ? Where was the press in that ignorant and unlearned age ? Who is the oracle tn-duy that can stand at St. Paul's pinnacle in London and give assurance and certainty to the whole kingdom that Madoc Ap Owain Gwynedd never left England with 10 vessels ?—Yours truly, J. D. WALTERS.
