IMESSRS. BOLLAND'S SUCCESS. I In connection with the Royal visit to Wales, Messrs. Bolland were again favoured with Royal patronage. On Thursday in last week they fur- nished and elaborately deoorated a large marquee at Bangor, in which the Princess of Wales received purses on behalf of the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Infirmary. The front of the Infirmary was also elaborately decorated. At Bangor, on Friday, Messrs. Bolland supplied the monstre marquee, in which they served the Royal luncheon in a style worthy of their great reputa- tion. This marquee was lined throughout with red and white sateen and beautifully decorated with festoons of smilax and red and white roses. Hanging baskets, some of which were filled with fern and roses, others entirely with roses, added a pleasing effect to the general appearance. The wall panels were arranged with floral devices. The 23 tables were artistically decorated I with flowers, patriotically emblematical, red and white roses and blue cornflowers, forming a most unique arrangement. There were altogether 700 guests and at the Royal table, which was handsomely ap- pointed, 88 of the most distinguished guests sat down. The President, Lord Kenyon, occupied the chair. The Princess of Wales sat on his right, while the Prince was on his left. Earl Carrington, Earl Spencer, Lord and Lady Mostyn, Lady Mary Lygon, and many others, were also present. Light refreshments were supplied to their Royal Highnesses and suite, and also the most distinguished members of the University, at the Pavilion at Carnarvon, on Friday. The arrangements for furnishing the Royal apart- ments were also satisfactorily carried out by Messrs. Bolland. They received every assistance from the London and North-Western Railway representative, Mr. Entwistle, the new district superintendent. All the firm's arrangements were highly satisfactory, and the event may be placed in the list of their greatest successes.
