PERTWEE (BURRYFORT), With Preface by the Editor of The Cambrian. NOW SELLING. May be obtained at The Cambrian Office, Swansea; and from Pri&cipal booksellers in South Wales. The Book deal8 p, he Foundation and History of the Parish ch of Pembrey, before and after the Norman ConqUeat) and with itg Architecture, Carvm;& &c. There are 23 valuable and interesting Illustrations. PRESS OPINIONS. The Western Mail says :Mr. Edward Roberts of Swansea, a gentleman who has provided the public with many InstructIve and original con. tributions on place-nam as just produced a most interesting his'to'T, • Wtyd's Church, Pembrey, which is publis in book form, and is copiously illustrated by Mr. tL. A. Pertwee, of Burry Port, who has also dealt with the architec- tural portion of the work. The Ltanelly Guardian says:-That the history of this church has been undertaken by Messrs. Roberts and Pertwee at once guarantees antiquarian research and local knowledge com. bined; for the former gentleman ha.s for many I years made a speciality of the study of Welsh, antiquities and place names. Such sur- vivals as heraldic carvings, burials and memorial stones, the inscriptions for which are most interesting reading, bring back to our minds the Butler family, of Dunraven and Pembrey; the Vaughans, the Mansels and the xtees's. In fact, the little brochure is a most complete collection of historical facts connected with the old Church and the district. The letterpress and illustrations are excellently printed, and much credit is due to The Cambrian office, Swansea, for the tasteful manner of its get-up. A Torquay gentleman writes :—" The writers I of the very interesting work on St. Illtyd's Church, Pembrey, which has been recently pub- lished at your office, invite discussion in your I columns. They must be first congratnlated on their contribution to the literature of parochial histories, and The Cambrian Newspaper Company also deserves praise for the style m which the book has been printed and issued.

[12131 ICTORIA WARD ELECTION, LADIES AND GENTLBMSN, Of course I am not pleased with the result of this Election, Mr. Spring has taken my seat; he has acted unfairly towards me, and I am quite certain he has not gained anything by it. A great deal has been said about the rottenness of the Victoria Ward. I do not think the result of this Election has shown this. The great majority of the electors of this Ward are very poor, and there is no doubt, that Mr Spring has been a good friend to them. He looked after their courts, drains and streets personally, and in a way which I could not pretend to. Those who live in good houses and in different surroundings, cannot realise what this attention has meant. I must confess that I cordially sympathise with the difficulty in which many of the electors found themselves, and I do not blame them for voting for Mr. Spring. In saying good-bye to the Victoria Ward, I wish to publicly thank those friends who so unselfishly supported me, and to say that this sympathy and appreciation during the 16 years I represented the Ward, was one of the greatest incentives to me in doing what little I was able to do in our mutual interests while I was in the Council. Yours f .ithfully, FRED. ROCKE. SWANSEA MUNICIPAL ELECTION. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE FFTNONE WARD. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—I have to tender you my sincere thanks for the honour you have done me in returning me unopposed as your representative. Assuring- you that your interests as ratepayers shall always receive my c^r?. anc^ constant attention,—I *m, yours faithfully WILLIAM WATKINS. Ashleigh, Ffynone, Nov- 1st, 1898.
