J.P., Alderman Wtii. Morgan, J.P., Mr. Watts Morgan, Mr. J. Owen Jones, Mr. Llewellyn Evans, Mr. Thomas Evans, Mr. John Rees, Dr. W, E. Thomas, Mr. J. D. Williams, J.P., Mr. William Jenkins, J.P.

Nicholas, presented her with a lovelv bouquet of orchids and carnations, the Princess smiling her pleasure in accepting the gift. The following were then presented to Her Royal Higliiiess:-Couiieilloi, Thos. Thomas (chairman of the District Coun- cil), Mr. W. P. Nicholas (clerk), Mr. L. W. Llewelyn (president of the Chamber of Trade), and Mr. John Rees, County Stores (secretary). Mr. Rhys Williams then asked Her Royal Highness to accept the gold key of the building. Her Royal Highness, who wore a lovely dress of light heliotrope material, with a V-shaped yoke of cream lace, with a diamond brooch at her throat, and a rope of pearls falling in a loop from the neck to the waist, in a few words expressed her high appreciation of the honour done her by the gift (applause). "Crugybar," to the tune of the well- known hymn "0 fryniau Caersalem ceir gweled," was next sung, and both the Prince.s and the Duke of Argyll were evidently much struck bv the beautiful singing and the extraordinary effect. Immediately before singing;, Mr. John Rees, the secretary, handed Her Royal Highness a translation of Crugybar," by the Rev. John Thomas, M.A., Liver- pool, and Her Highness heartily joined in the singing.
