n_ LADY LLEWELYN. INTERESTING PRESENTATION AT THE UNION OFFICES. Following) closely on the recent presentation of a portait to Sir John T. D. Llewelyn, Bart., by the Swansea Guardians, another pleasing ceremony was performed at the Union Offices yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, when Lady Llewelyn, who is president of the Ladies' Visiting Committee, was made the recipient of a handsome solid silver inkstand and ornaments with the family crest and surrounded by a flower epergne, which is to bear the following in-cription Presented to Lady Llewelyn, president of the Ladies' Visiting Committee, by the members and officers of the Swansea Board of Guardians, May 26th, 19 1." By this means her ladyship has a material token of her kindly visits and the interest she has taken in the poor, which have been thoroughly appreciated by all concerned. Lady Llewelyn arrived at half-past twelve, accom- panied by Sir John, Miss Llewelyn, and Miss Dillwyn. Dr. Gomer Lewis (chairman of the Board) pre- sided over the gathering, which was well attended, and opened the prcceedings with graceful refer- ences to Lady Llewelyn's interest in the poor. Messrs. F. H. Glyn-Priee, Herbert Solomon, and Ll. Jenkins (the clerk to the Board), added their appreciation of her ladyship's work on the Visiting Committee, and then Mrs. Perkins made the presentation in very suitable terms. Lady Llewelyn, who was most cordially received, made a pretty reply, regarding the gift as a memento rather of her husband's good work. This year was the 40th anniversary of her wedding day-(applau,e) -and all through that time her husband had worked for the poor in Swansea and district with his whole heart and a singleness of purpose which the Guardians and officers appreciated, and which she could still better. (Applause). Sir John Llewelyn was called upon to say a few words, and in doing so he referred to the good ork done by la,ty guardians, and mentioned that he nominated Miss Brook, the first lady guardian i Swansea. Miss Dillwyn also spoke, and upon the pro- position of Mr. J. Harvey, seconded by Mr. Siedle, a vote of thanks was accorded the Cbair- min, and the interesting ceremony was brought to a close.
