WELSHMAN BEATS CENSOR. A DODGE TO SEND NEWS FROM I GERMANY. Welsh prisoners of war in Germany are able to notify their friends in this country more fully of the conditions of prison and internment camp life than are their English colleagues, and that without having recourse to the doubtful safe- guard of invisible ink. A letter which easily passed the German censor, and will long be kept as a family treasure, contains the following The words given here in brackets are the English equivalents of the Welsh word immediately preceding. The letter was written in Iinglisli throughout excepting the Welsh words which the German censor took to be the names of other English prisoners. The letter reads You will be glad to hear news of old friends. Mr. Bwyd (food) is very bad here. Mr. Bara (bread) is very much darker than when you saw him, and is quite hard. I never see Mr. Cig (meat), and Mr. Ymenyn (butter) but seldom lie was very bad indeed the last few times I met him. I used at first to meet Mr. Uaeth (milk) every day, but lie has not been here now for some time." --6-
