THE PARISH CHURCH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CAMBRIAN." STR,-The contention regarding the religious and sacerdotal feelings of John Wesley for the Episcopal Anglican Church between the Rev. T. J. Rawlings ani myself, has been a digression from the purpose of my letter in reference to the Consecration of the Parish Church of Swansea and the visit of the Archbishop of Canterbury, which you kindly inserted in The Cambrian of the 14th inst. My only desire is to bring into full considera- tion of the paishioners of Swansea the intimate interest of past, present and future generations of all born and resident within the radius of their Parish Church, that the sacred heritage of the past is now, and will be for future ages, the sacred valued inheritance of their descendants— the legal absolute right of all. Very many of the well-known and representa- tive Nonconformists of Swansea were in early possession of a large portion of their Parish Church upon its Consecration, and they did right to be present and claim equally their share of the sacred and religious property; but with the rights of all property for its possession as a religious trust, corner also the sacred duty to bear the burden. The Parish Church being the corporate possession of the paiishioners, the Corporate Estate should be called upon to justify and complete its claim and its title. With this prelude, "the present equitable consideration" for the po-session and title of the work so zealously undertaken by the Church under its representative, Chancellor Smith, is for earnest consideration. There is about z65,000 wanting to complete the Tower of the Parish Church, and the Corporate Estate can most clearly and most righteously be called upon to provide that money as a lasting memorial of its religious and social trust. Such a sum is a bagatelle for any passing secular want or fancy of the community—for widening a street or even to provide electlio carriages. Surely for suiih a work as the Parish Church—that for Conformist and Nonconformist alike, in their own individual and corporate entity, will be their corporate estate-none can refuse. Let the worthy Nonconformist Mayor with his strong Catholic intelligence and personality, place his name upon the inception of what will be for ages to come the memorial of Civic- Corporate duty well and justly done to the glory of God." -Yours, &c., JOHN HoriuNS. Nicholaston House, Cefn Bryn, Oct. 30th, 1898.
