Williams, M.E., together with the Cymmer Collieries, and was as follows Presented to RICHARD MARTYN, Esq., Bandmaster, Cymmer Colliery Brass Band. Dear Sir,—Your many friends in the locality of Porth, Cymmer and district, cannot allow you to depart from their midst without expressing; in a tangible form the high appreciation in which you are held by them. They learn with regret your decision to remove from Porth, for during your twenty-five years' residence here you have always been ready to promote every good cause, not only by your personal interest, but with your practical support. We shall ever cherish the grateful recol- lections of your valuable services as band- master of the Cymmer Colliery Brass Band. The benefit of your ripe experience and sound knowledge in the divine Art. of music has been of great value, not only to the bandsmen who were fortunate in being members of your band, but also to the district in general. It is difficult to express in words our profound feelings of regret that you should be severing your connection with Porth, but we beg your acceptance of this humble address, together with a, purse of gold, as a slight indication of our regards, and our parting wish to both you and yours is that you may long be spared to enjoy in peace and comfort the evening of your lives' upon earth. On behalf of the subseribers, we beg to remain, yours faithfully:—Thomas Gri- ffiths, M'.Ei., J.P., president; E. S. Wil- liams, M.E., vice-president; Thomas Yorath (chairman), John Samuel (vice- chairman), Lewis Lewis and Geo. Thomas Parlour, committee; Harry Cooper and George Croker, hon. treasurers; John Jenkins and A. J. Jenkins, hon. secre- taries. The presentation of the address was made by Councillor Thomas Griffiths, whilst the purse of gold was duly handed over by Mr. William Evans. In responding, Mr. Martyn expressed his sincere gratitude for the very kind expressions which had fallen from the speakers. During his connection with the band, he had always received from the boys the most cordial support, and it was with a sense of unbounded satis- faction to him to find that his services were so much appreciated. The impres- sion left was deep and lasting, and as long as he lived he would look back with affection upon his 25 years' connection with the band (cheers). During the evening, songs were ren- dered by Messrs. Dewi Davies and Tom Abraham. Mr. Tudor Yorath, L.L.C.M., also gave a. pianoforte solo, Men of Harlech," with variations. Mr. Tom Davies acted as accompanist. The usual vote of thanks concluded a pleasant, evening's proceedings. Mabon."
