NYE, Ysgrifenydd Trysorfa Sefydliad Amddifynol yr Eglwys (Financial Secretary to the Church Defence Institution). The Palace, Llandaff, March 13th, 1890. MY DEAR SIR,—I am much obliged to you for a copy of your Popular Story of the Church in Wales." I have just read it, and think it a valuable and very seasonable addi- tion, to Church Defence Literature, and that it would help to strengthen our hands very much if the clergy (especially in Wales) would make an effort to get it widely circulated in their parishes.—Believe me, very faithfully yours, R.

PRINTIN G of all kinds executed without delay, in the best style of the art, and at reasonable prices at the office of this paper. Church and Choir Notices, Bills and Tickets for Entertainments, &c. What the Trade Journals say of our work:— H From the office of Messrs. Farrant and Frost, Printers, of Merthyr Tydfil, we have received a number of specimens of general printing (chiefly concert work) of a very superior character. Where so many nice things are shown, it is not easy to particularise. The bulk of the programmes and cards show several origi- nal designs, successfully carried out, and even where nothing out of the ordinary r_" ry- run has been attempted, the job bears the stamp of neat and excellent workmanship. Two programmes-for a volunteer and an orchestral concert-are good samples of new and attractive ideas for this special class of printing, and indeed the whole collection from this house bears impress of having been produced in a well-stocked office by efficient hands. The London, Provincial, and Colonial Press News," April 26th, 1887. Messrs. Farrant and Frost, Printers, 135, High-street, Merthyr, and 8, Canon- street, Aberdare, send samples chiefly of bazaar and programme work-all first rate. Some of the ideas are original and very happy."—>( The Paper and Printing Trades Journal," December, 1887. Messrs. Farrant and Frost, Merthyr Tydfil, send us the four-page aiinounce.,r ment of a fancy fair in aid of the restora- tion of the Parish Church of Merthyr. Worked throughout in the style of our ancestors as regards both type and spell- ing, the announcement with its quaint design of an old-fashioned crier who be- gins the text, with the time honoured Ovez! Oyez!! and with its chocolate- hued ink solidly impressed upon rough deckle-edged paper is strikingly adapted n n to its purpose."—"The Paper and Print- ing Trades Journal," March, 1888. Messrs. Farrant and Frost, 135, High- street, Merthyr Tydfil. Very superior specimens indeed-all tastefully done in the best stylq. The booklet, Marriacre, is it a Failure?" composed of extracts from the poets who think it is not a failure, is quite a gem in its way, its material aspect being worthy of the beauty of its literary contents.—" The Paper and Printing Trades Journal," June, 1889.
