Our Wounded Boys. — Sad and lamentable news are continually reach- ing the town that some of our brave boys in the theatre of war are compelled to fall off for a time. Some are suffering from wounds, others from frost bites, and others from fevers and exhaustion: Good and very encouraging news was received by Mrs Angell Jones on Monday last that the doctor bad reported very favourably upon the case of Thomas Hugh Jones, and hopefully expressed an opinion that be wouid have a speedy recovery. Thomas Hugh's case has truly been a sad one. He has under- gone five operations at different times, and has suffered greatly. It is a com- fort, however, to learn what the dpctor said Jones," he said, is a brick, very plucky and honourable." Thomas Hugh himself brings a philosophical mind to bear upon the case, for he said Com- pared with others, I consider myself lucky to have escaped with my Jife." Mr and Mrs Wright, who are well- known visitors at Barmouth, and who stay at Bod Idris, have been most generous and kind to him, and still continue to be so. May he have a speedy and complete recovery is the wish and prayer of his many friends at Barmouth.
