A quiet wedding was solemnised at Pontardawe on Wednesday of last week when Mr. Howel Morgan, son of Mr. Edward Morgan, Ynisbydafo Farm, was married to Miss Gwen Williams, only daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. David Williams, Laamb and Flag Cot- tages. Both parties are well known in the district, and have the best wishes of all friends. On Saturday another interesting wedding took place at Neath, the con- tracting parties being Mr. Morgan Watkins, third son of Mr. and Mrs. Thos.

The bride, who was neatly dressed in a navy costume with hat to match, was attended by Miss Blodwen Roberts, who was also dressed in a navy costume with grey hat, whilst Mr. Watkin Rees Watkins, brother of the bridegroom, carried out the duties of best man. We wish them every happiness in their wedded life. Pte.
