EISTEDDFOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUARDIAN. Tavistock street, Bedford square, June 11, 1833. When I did myself the pleasure of writing to you on the subject of an Eisteddfod in Glamorganshire, I merely stated that Swansea had been named to me as a place capable of accommodating a number of visitors, &c. It will remain of course, with the gentlemen of the county and the neighbourhood to fix on a place that may appear to them best calculated, in every respect, to hold a grand nieeeting: I say in every respect, meaning, in the first place, that there should be a room capable of containing four or five hundred persons to give the concert in; a Church, with a good organ, so that a selection of sacred music might be performed, which always adds to the dignity of the festivals, as well as to the funds, in a pecu- niary point of view; and. if the Goredd could be held, as it was at Denbigh and Beaumaris, within the walls of an ancient castle, where fifteen hundred or two thousand persons could be admitted, it would be most desirable. I am totally unacquainted with both Swansea and Cardiff, and have only to add, that should an Eisteddfod be held next year in Glamorganshire, I shall be most happy to do all in my power to promote it. Let, as you justly observe, a few gentlemen form them- selves into a Committee,* to ascertain the practicability of holding a meeting and, above all, let them institute a guarant66 fund, to indemnify themselves from any heavy liability, and leave the rest to the patriotism and gwlad. gariech of Gwyr Forganwg. I remain, Sir, your obedient servant. JOHN PARRY. » Should a committee be formed, and if thev wi!! do me the honour of communicating with me I shall be able to give such information at the onset, as may facilitate the business very much.
