THE FLINTSHIRE BAPTIST UNION. The bi-monthly meeting was held at Mold on Monday, the 6th inst., the Rev. E. T. Davies, Rhyl, presiding. Prayer was offered, and the minutes of the previous meeting were con- firmed. Delegates were appointed to visit the churches who receive support from the Home Mission Fund. A vote of sympathy was passed with Mr. A. Adams, the vice-president, in his long and serious illness. Arrangements were made for the musical festival, which is to be held at St. Asaph in June. Soloists were selected. The Revs. B. Evans and T. Shankland were entrusted with railway arrangements, and the friends at St. Asaph to complete the local matters. The Revs. E. T. Davies and O. M. Owen were selected to preach at the next meeting, at Hal- kyn, in May. The Rev. T. Shankland read a very valuable and interesting paper on the History of the Baptists of Flintshire.' The writer confined himself to the Mold neighbourhood, and some remarkable facts were read, showing the early relation of some of the notable families of the district to the Baptists, especially Mr. Thomas Edwards, J.P., of Rhaal, Mold, who was born 250 years ago next October, a gentleman of great learning, and.occupying high positions in the country, a faithful Baptist in a time of much hardship. He built the Baptistery in Rhual Park. He published a book which occa- sioned a great stir at the time. The title of the book is I Baxterianism barefaced.' It seems that some noted Baptist ministers have preached at Rhual from time to time. After the conference, the delegates were en tertained at the Maelor Dining Rooms, Wrex- ham Street. In the evening, an instructive lecture was delivered by the Rev. B. Evans, Rhuddlan, on The Baptists and the rise of Nonconformity in Wales.'
