FrxERAL or MR THOMAS, Ty LUKE.—As was announced in your issue of last week, Mr William Thomas died very suddenly on the 17th inst. In his death Wenvoe has lost one of its oldest and most respected inhabitants. He was better known as Mr Thomas, the Greave Farm, where he resided for many years. Here he carried on an extensive business as farmer, and was very prosperous, being diligent and persevering. A few years ago he retired from business, and resided for a short time at Canton, but returned to Ty Luke about eighteen months ago. The Vale of Glamorgan had great attractions for him, having been brought up from his youth amidst its surroundings, and it was in his beloved neighbourhood he breathed his last. We cannot but refer to the great loss the neigh- bourhood has had in his death, and especially the Baptist Church at Twynyrodin, where he filled the position of deacon for many years. And he was not a deacon merely in name, but" in deed and in truth." On<i characteristic was his faith- fulness he was never absent unless illness pre- vented him, and not merely present, but he was also interested in the services. Being well read in the Bible and the different books that throw light on the sacred book, he was one of the most intelli- gent of hearers, and could appreciate the good points in a sermon as well as anyone. He also contributed liberally towards the cause. But his seat is empty, not only at his home, but also at the chapel, and his wise counsels and cheering words will be missed very much. Though the end came very unexpectedly, yet the universal testimony of those that knew him best was that he was per- fectly ready. He walked with God, as Enoch, and God took him. The funeral took place on the following Thursday. A short service was held at the house by the Rev Charles Davies, Tabernacle, Cardiff. The burial took place at St. Lythan's Churchyard, where the vicar, the Rev Joseph John, officiated, the Rev Charles Davies also giving a short address at the grave. The greatest sympathy is expressed with the -bereaved family.-AMICUs. CARDIFF. ] CALL AT THE OLD DOLPHIN, Church-street, Cardiff, for Soup, Hot or Cold Luncheon?, Wines, &c., of the best quality.
