Solomon (hon. 8eo.)., The Mayor, who presided; expressed hie fullest sympathy with the excellent work, and then Mr. J. Solomon, who met with a splendid reception, added some kind words to tbe aged folk assembled, which, it was evident, were-much appreciated Sir John Llewelyn proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the Mayor and Mayoress for their practical interest in the matter. In doing" so he referred to his personal interest in the movement for providing the old and infirm poor who were deserving with a little Christmas cheer. (Hear, bear.). Mr. H. G. Solomon had worked energetic- ally in connection with the matter, and he de-erved their warmest thanks for the manner in which be bad fulfilled his duties. He hoped the people received those gifts in the same spirit as they were given, and th-it was in the spirit of the Master. An act oi charity was Bot in the giving but in the motive, and he believtd the motive of those who bad supplied their wants that day was pure. He pointed out that the thanks were due not only to those who were giving, but to those who organised the distribution. Mr. Grig. Davies seconded, and pointed out the good work that had been done by the ladies, who had helped those who eould not help them- selves. The motion was carried with aanlamation, and the Mayor suitably responded. Mr^ Harvey moved a vote of thanks to the committee and the hon. secretary (Mr. Solomon) for their services. There was, he said, an impression that the secretary was paid for what he had done and was doing, but that was entirely untrue. The proposition was carried unanimously, and Mr. Salomon suitably replied. A very large number of Swansea's aged-poor and necessitous sick came forward to receive the customary allowance of a loaf of bread, 2 lbs. of beef, 1 lb. of sugar, and i lb. of tea.
