TO OUR READERS. I PONTYPOOL FREE PRESS OFFICE, JULT 2, 1877. The Pontypool Free Press was commenced by me in the year 1859, since which time it has been my pleasant duty to chronicle the passing events of this town and neighbourhood; and while I have carefully abstained from advocating the cause of any particular Party, either in matters of General or Local Interest, I have always endeavoured, I trust with some measure of success, to give the news of the district in a strictly faithful and impartial manner, and to render the columns of the paper a Fr" Platform" for the expression of all shades of opinion, irrespective of class or creed. I have now decided to retire from business, after nearly 20 years1 active service in Pontypool, and beg to inform you that I have this day disposed of my Newspaper and General Printing Business, g-c. In taking my leave of the public, I cordially thank all those who have so kindly and liberally patronised me, and beg to introduce my successor, Mr. Henry Hughes, Junr., of this town, who will, I confidently trust, carry on the business with increased energy, enterprise, and success.
