WELSH AUTHOR'S DISAPPEARANCE Mr Christmas Jones, a well-known Welsh author, left his home at Pontypridd on Monday morning, and 1 ate in the after- noon a letter from him, posted at Cardiff, was received by his eldest daughter, Mrs Hill, of Cardiff. In this letter, which covered nearly three pages of foolscap, Mr Jones expressed his intention of ending his life by jumping into the Glamorgan- shire Canal at, Cardiff or into the sea off Penarth Piier. He gave detailed in- structions as to the. disposal of the copy- right of his works and his funeral arrange- ments. This is the last that ha,s been heard of him. His family had no know- ledge of any financial difficulty, and they communicated with the police. A native of Carnarvonshire, Mr Jones settled in Cardiff a few yearsmgo and founded the Cymry Fydd (Young Wales) Society there. As secretary of that organ- isation he became acquainted with the leading politicians of the Principality. He removed to Pontypridd a, few years ago, and became the manager of a local news- paper. Three months ago he brought out in Welsh a shilling volume of the Life of Mr Lloyd-George, but his venture was forestalled.
