"Wars of the Roses." 1111. LLEWELYN WILLIAMS. M.P.. AXD THE RECORD OFFICE. Mr. Llewelyn Williams, M.P., speaking be- fore the Honourable Society of Cymrodorion in London, on Friday evening, said thai HIl" War of, the Roses was not ar, English war at all. From the time of William the Conqueror the English had not heen a martial race (laughter). They were always on the money- j making game (laughter). The chief people in the War of the Roses were Welshmen, who, with a few exceptions, fought for glory rather than for what they could gain (laughter). It was almost entirely a Welsli marcher war, in which South Walians followed the fortunes of Henry Tudor, who was born at Pembroke, and whose banner bore the Black Ox of Pem broke. He concluded with the announcement that he was asking the Government to appoint a Welshman to the Record Office for the par- pose 01 examining the Welsh documents resting there.
