REV. S. C. BOWEN, A.C., CELLI. Interesting Farewell Presentation. A well-attended meeting was held on Monday evening at Siloam Baptist Chapel, Gelli, Rhon- dda, to bid farewell to the Rev S. G. Bowen, A.C., who has accepted a unanimous call to the Baptist churches of Penuel and Ebenezer, Pem- brokeshire. The rev. gentleman's friends and well-wishers in the valley united with the church members in taking advantage of the opportuni- ty presented for expressing in tangible form their appreciation of his merits and services to the locality. An influential committee was soon formed, with Dr W. E. Thomas as chairman; );- Thomas Davies, Tivy House, treasurer, and Mr H. Harris, Bailey street, hon. sec. Every encouragement to the project was readily ac- corded on all hands, and, considering the short time at the committee's disposal, everything was satisfactory throughout. It was intended to present Mr Bowen at the meeting with .a cos illuminated address, but unfortunately the designer and writer (Mr Ryan, Treorky) could not possibiy get it completed in time. This difficulty did not in any degree damp the ardour of the hundreds present. After a short read- ing and prayer by the Rev E. T. Jones, Llwyny- pia, the secretary read letters of regret for ab- sence from Revs T. Lewis and Samson Jones, Treforest; Dan Davies, Porth; and Mr Einon, Gelli. All wished the rev. gentleman God- speed and every success in his new sphere of labour. The meeting was addressed by Revs H. Harris, Treherbert; M. C. Morris, Ton; C. Owen, Bodringallt; P. Gelly, Gelli; A. Wil- liams, Nebo; T. Young Jones, Trealaw; James, Cwmgarw; U. G. Davies, Ton; Mr D. Wil- liams, Treherbert, and Mr E. H. Davies, J.P., Pentre. All spoke with unstinting praise of Mr Bowen as a preacher, musician, and poet, and predicted a brilliant future and success in Pem- brokeshire. On behalf of the church and friends Mr John Jenkins, senior deacon of the church, presented Mr Bowen with the draft address, and in the course of an able speech testified to the arduous duties and services performed by him since his advent to the locality eleven vears ago. The Rhondda Valley Baptist Ministers' Association had also prepared an address for Mr Bowen, who had acted as secretary for that body for a long period. The address was read by the Rev R. Harris, Treherbert. The Rev L. G. Bowen feelingly acknowledged the tri- butes of his friends in a few well chosen words. At intervals several solos were beautifully ren- dered by local artistes, among whom may be named Miss Sarah Jenkins. Miss Davies. Bod- ringallt; and Mr Richards. Mr Dan Evans, accompanied in his usual tasteful style. Mrs Bowen was afterwards made the recipient of a well-filled purse, and the three children were presented with a Bible each. by Messrs Middle- cot-t- and Rhys Edwards, on behalf of the Sunday School. The reverend gentleman leaves the dis- trict with the good wishes of all for a prosper- ous, successful, and happy career in Pembroke- sliire The meeting closed with prayer, offered by Rev E. W. Davies, Ton.
