Tonypaqdy and Trealaw Election.


Tonypaqdy and Trealaw Election. "Our Prejudices are our greatest robbers, and our Vices the greatest murderers!" Victor Hugo. To the Editor. Sir- Through your kind courtesy, I have a won, explanation with regard to the four words quoted by men in a political speech on the 21st ult. It seems they have given great off- ence to some of Mr John Williams' supporters, especially the two words "Wooden heads." I quoted the two words from Mr William Rich- ard's (Trealaw and Diiias) speech, in Zion Vestry on the 17th ult.—one of Mr John Wil- liams supporters. The two words "old women'" I quoted from Mr Kilsby Jones, only para- phrased and boiled down. A perfect stranger to me wrote last week, "The Rev Beynon Da- vies said that tue non selected nominee (Mr John Williams) and supporters were" old women" and "wooden heads." Now, never said so. I wish it to be distinctly understood, I did not mean those quoted words to apply to Mr John Williams and his suppor- ted, but to those persons swho joined th, Liberal Association and deserted afterwards. Only one word again. In the two political meetings I was in, not a single word was uttered insinuating anything against "the moral character of Mr John Williams." After this explanation, no one but a wicked man will repeat the above interpre- tation of my quoted words. I hope the- best men-and as you say, Mr Editor, men of ex- perience—will be returned at the I)oll.-Thank- ing you, Sir, in anticipation, I am, etc., Trealaw. J. BEYNON DAVIES. Congregational Minister.
