I CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible fot thp opinions of our correspondents. I I To the Editor. I ] OUR BELGIANS. Dear Mr Editor, Monsignor Dewachter, auxiliary bishop ot Malines, acting here as Vioar- General of Cardinal Mercier, came bere on Saturday evening. Later he heard of the generosity and kindness of the people of Barmouth to the refugees. He showed himself greatly impressed, and wished it to be known far and wide that he wa.s very deeply touched by their charity and offered them one and all his sincerest tribute of thanks. He said this publicly at the Belle Vue Hall, and told me himself how his feelings had been aronsed by the kindness shown by one and all, and that he desired his t warmest appreciation to -be accorded to everyone in Barmouth. So I ask you to do this. How biseompatdots welcomed him ¡ could be seen by the ovation offered on the arrival and departure of his train. A more remarkable outburst of human feeling could scarcely have been witnessed. He was welcomed by FatberWilcock. The children sang; tbey offered him flowers; the men shook hands and cheered, and read an address of welcome. It was a beautiful sight to see bow this patriotic Bishop took notice even of the smallest child, and his loving words were full of inspiration and hope. A true Bishop of souls had come into the midst of the Belgian victims of German tyrrany. Some of these people," said he, speaking to me of his compatriots, may be poor indeed, bofe the poorer they are the dearer to God, and I have come to visit them because I am iesponsible to God." The people of Barmoutb will, I feel sure, be glad to receive the thanks at such a man as this, and I am proud to have met him. Yours truly, C. A. MENDHAM, Mount Argus, 27th March, 1916. P.S.-I bear Monsignor Dewacbter is sending a Belgian Priest to give a message to the Belgians on Wednes- day.
