A letter was also read from Miss Gee, in which she stated that her mother and all the family at Bronallt, wished to thank the Governors sincerely for their kind sympathy with them in their deep sorrow, and for their appreciation of her father's labours in the cause of education in Wales, which was very near his heart, and during his long life he continually devoted time and money to it, but Sunday School education came first, and always gave the heartiest pleasure and satisfaction. He was very anxious for the success of the Denbigh County School, as at one time he had been a pupil in the old school, under the Rev. John Roberts. At that time her father repeated the Latin Grammar from beginning to end in one morning, and Mr. Roberts gave all the pupils a holiday in consequence.
