BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. We deeply regret to announce the death of the Rev J. R. Kilsby Jones, of Llanwrtyd, which took place at his residence, Glenview, on Wednes- day morning, after a somewhat brief illness. The direct canse of death was inflammation of the lungs. The rev. gentleman, who was in the 76th year of his age, had for many "years stood in the very forefront of Welsh Nonconformity, He was equally well-known on the political platform and in the pulpit. A vigorous and eloquent speaker, no demonstration of any preten- sions in the Welsh political world was complete without the presence of this, bold and uncompromising exponent of civil and religious liberty. Mr Kilsby Jones was a prominent member of the Congregationalist body, but he was in no sense sectarian in bis sympathies. ;wWæ:at. His broad humanity transcended all sectional lines, and any movement having for its object the amelioration of his countrymen was assured of his hearty support. His death has created a great void in the religious and political life of Wales. There was no more unique personality in contemporary Iiistory than Kilsby, and he will long be remembered for his generous and practical Christianity, for his burning patriotism, for his rugged outspokenness and his entire, whole- souled devotion to every cause that ho believed to be noble and true. The intelligence of his death will be received with deep grief throughout the length and breadth of the principality. The funeral of the deceased gentleman will take place on Saturday afternoon. It will be strictly private. The body will be interred in Llanwrtyd Parish Churchyard.
