THE RECTOR'S SPEECH. I In his annual review of the year the Rector said that on the 2nd of January last year they were engaged in the same business as they were that night-the parochial tea, and it was very successful. In February Lent began and on March 13 confirmation took place at Ledbury and 16 candidates went from that place. In May the cricket season opened and it was most un- fortunate that the three first matches they were unable to play owing to the inclement weather. Then there was the outbreak of German measles and they had to close the schools for a month. (Subdued cheer.) Then Lord Somers came but only a few saw him. He was in the country again, back frotn the Colonies. He hoped he would come amongst them and he would be welcome when he did come. In June Mr Arthur Robinson took great horiours at Cam- bridge and he was very proud of him. (Ap- plause.) They were proud of the fact that an Eastnor resident had done so well in that great university. On July 4—he could remember July 4 very well, for the choir and the bell- ringers went for their annual outing to Bristol. (Laughter.) I know what you are laughing at," he said. When we went to the Agricul- tural Show, I told you to be sure that you did not miss the train and to he sure that you did not get left behind, and the Rector (meaning himself) both missed the train and got left behind." (Laughter.) He went on to say that he had a -rather good recollection of waiting for the train to come. He went all over Bristol trying to find a place to rest his weary head. (Laughter.) .He referred to Major and Mrs Atherly, who had left Eastnor, remarking that it was a great loss to them. Mr and Mrs Atherly were always ready to help anybody and everybody. They had often helped them in the expenses of the church. In September Lady Henry Somerset was back at home at the Castle. (Applause.) She was there for a month. He knew Lady Henry Somerset before he knew Eastnor. In November they had a very successful Pound Day at St Mary's Home. The C.L. B. was in a bad state then, they asked the lads if they were going on with it and they said yes." To make a long story short they said they were going on with it. In December a shooting com- petition took place at the club and the prizes were distributed by Mr Rowden. He had a service on that night or he would have been there. He said he would also give a prize. On the 30th of that month they had a Christmas tree at the Home. Through the year seven of their number passed away, but they were better off now, and he would always remember them. There was seven baptisms during the year. He thanked all the kind ladies and gentlemen who contributed in money and kind to their parochial tea that night and it had been successful. In conclusion the Rector thanked them all and wished them a happy New Year and many of them.
