"A PROMPT RESPONSE." Amongst the recent visitors to Swansea was Pte. Howie Powell, son, of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Powell, formerly of Ynysmeudw, [Uano], Pontardawe. Mrs. Powell is a sister of Dr. Wm. Morgan, Somerset-place. Swan- .300. Young Powell came across with a contingent of the Canadian Mounted Rifles, and after stay- ing a day or two it Swansea with his uncle William, he proceedel to the ■Swansea Valley and spent a pleasant time with his other rela. tives, the Morgan's. of Abercrave Colliery. An amusing incident in connection with this visit is unfolded by the popular mcdko 1 had never previously the privi- lege of seeing my dear little nephew, aa hid mother and father left here many years ago for Canada. Hearing. however, that Howie had joined the Canadian contingent and was coming to this country prior to pro- ceeding to France. I sat down one Sunday evening and penned a few lines extending to him a warm and welcome invitation as soon as he reached these shores to come and make his home with me during his etay in Wales. The house-keeper afterwards took the letter to the General Post Office. In her temporary absence there came a knock at the front door; I went and answered it. When I opened the door a tall, smart yonng fellow dressed in khaki confronted me. He was over six feet in height .and a glorious specimen cf manhood. He looked at me for a second, and then smilingly inquired 'Whether Dr. William Morgan was in?' J told him I was that gentler-nati. 'Well,' be responded, I am your Sister Jane's son from Canada' You can imagine my surprise at the prompt response to my invitation, and to find my dear little nephew stood up- wards of six feet high!"
