Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade's I Presentation. This was followed by the presentation of a beautiful silver casket on an oak base by Mr. Leonard Llewelyn (president), on behalf of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade. It was symbolical of the coal industry. The lid was surmounted by the figure of a collier, with mandril, lamp, food-box, and block of wood, and on the pedestal the rose, the shamrock, and the thistle were embossed. At the corners there were Corinthian pillars and four Welsh dragons, while on the front of the casket was engraved a pithead, the back being an engraved representation of the Judge's Hall. It was of solid silver. The inscription re,,ids To Her Royal Highness Princess Louise, from the Mid-Rhondda and Dis- trict Chamber of Trade, on the oceasio'i of Her Roval Highness' visit. Julv 23rd, 1909. The secretary (Mr, John Rees) read the following address: May it please your Royal Highness. We, the representatives of the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, crave leave to present this humble and loyal address of welcome on the occasion of your Royal Highness' visit to Mid- Rhondda, the centre of the coal indus- try of the Rhondda Valleys. We profoundly appreciate the honour graciously bestowed upon us, and will always cherish the memory of the visit of an illustrious daughter of an illus- trious Queen, whose beneficent reign will stand out in history as coincident with the greatest industrial, commer- cial, and Imperial triumphs ever re- corded in the progress of the nation's triumphs, wlilich are, moreover, per- petuated and extended by the humane and wise Sovereignty of His Majesty King Edward the Peacemaker. The inhabitants of the Rhondda Valley are deeply indebted to your Royal Highness for performing the gracious ceremony of opening this Memorial Hall, which has been erected as a gift of the late Judge Gwilym Williams' family to the district which he faithfully served for manv years. It is our earnest prayer that your Royal Highness may be granted every blessing of health and happiness, and a long continuance of the noble life, so replete with good works and kindly actions which has endeared your Royal Highness to the hearts of the people.
