My platoon olhcer is Mr. Watkins, nephew of Mr. J. Watkius, J.P. Private 1. E. Hughes, Mesopotamia. Just a line in acknowledgment of cigs, and also the little card enclosed. Your encouraging words are much appreciated. May your statement of peace this year come true and that we shall soon all be re-united in the near future. I was very glad to hear that thc.e was a Y.M.C.A. at Aber. and shall be pleased to become a member.

They are "truly doing a great work, making tasks half as light, and the mountains of d¡f!l('' do not appear half so steep when we think of all our friends' loving interest. I am sure that when hostilities cease qhose who have helped us so much at home will not easily be forgotten. It will be a great opportunity for those of us who may be spared to return t rallv round the blood-stained banner of the Cross and do our best to win others for Hun who gave his life upon the Cross.

The military authori- ties, however, viewed that kind of thing-very seriously, and hoped their lenioncy would not bo misinterpreted.—Mr. W. P. Owen, Abcrv wvth, for the defence, said the alleged offence was said to have been committed in n sermon preached on the 14th of April in the parish of Llangybi. He had read the sermon and if the i magistrates read it the result would have been the same as that day. Had the case proceeded, he would have produced a resolution from the .church at which the sermon was preached, and also from another church, in which the peti- I c tioners expressed complete, satisfaction that there was nothing in contravention of the Defence of the Realm Act. Defendant was per- fectly willing for the case to proceed lie Bench gta.nted the Chief Constable's applica- tion to withdraw the summons.

a hospital last week-end to see Lieut. Owen Ballinger who has been wounded in the leg. Pleased to say I found him in good health and spirits, he having good hopes in the way of a. trip to Blighty to get over his wound. j am sorry to say that i did not receive the parcel you refer to of a .few months buck, so I am afraid it has gone west. Lance-corporal T. D. Spencer, France.—I was very pieased to receive another parcel from you yesterday. I have been moving lately, but it followed me. H. is very good ol you and the Xi>»*ysi.u*yt.b friends to keep us cliaps supplied with a smoke, and I very much appreciate your kindness. We 4c having quite a heat wave here just now, which soon caused the Cardigan jackets, etc., to be lefi on. I see Sergeant S. Jones, K.E., sometimes; also Private W. H. Jones, M.W.B. I was sorry to hear of the deaths of Hughie Kowe and Lieut. J. Samuel. J. see that the Y.M.C.A. is a suc- cess. It would be a very good thing if 3 had the Skating Rink. Sapper E. Goodwin, France.—I received your ever-welcome parcel yesterday and was very pleased with it, as 1 had run out of cigs. It is a pleasure to have the Y.M. here. I hope the Aber. Y.M.C.A. is successful, as I should be glad to become a member. The weather is beautiful at present, and I hope you are having the same at Aber. Bombardier S. Davies, France.—Your wel- come parcel to .hand to-day and I wish to thank you for it. I also wish to thank you for the kind words you sent. I shall always remember them. I noticed in the Cambrian ews" a few weeks ago that P.C. Richards, Adpar, is to join the colours. I also heard that his brother has been slightly wounded; but I hope he is all right now. Sapper James Lloyd, France.—I beg to acknowledge receipt of the parcel containing cigarettes and to thank you most sincerely and also the kind friends who are supporting you. Your continued kindness makes it difficult for ine to express in words how greatly I appre- ciate the parcels and also the kind words ex- on the cards. We are now in bivouacs in the treuchco -and",can assure you there was great joy among us when the pnrcal arrived. We are having glorious weather. Things are fairly quiet, though we had a rough time of it lately. I met two Penparke boys last week —Private J. D. Hughes, A.S.C., and Driver Davies, It.G.A., and both were looking well; also Driver E. T. Jones, R.G.A., Glanrafon- Farm. I am glad the Y.M.C.A. is prosper- ing at Aber. and I hope this summer will see the end of this terrible war. I have seen some of the American troops who are a fine lot o men. Private Dan Morgan, France.-I received your parcel of cigarettes safely and I thank you and Aber. friends for it. I was pleased to read in the "Cambrian News" that the Y.M.C.A. is doing so well. Gunner J. Edwards, France.-Pleyse accept and convey my warmest thanks to the people of Aber. for the kindness to me in the parcel of cigs. We are on the outskirts of a his- torical ruined city, which was once very pretty, and industrial, but is now a mass of ruins. Although Fritz has gained a little ground, he has had to pay heavily for it, and if he attempts it again it will cost him double, and lie knows it. Private W. H. Harries, France—Many thanks for your welr«HH»fpav'-c?. it Is very kind of you to think of the boys out here, as it is a pleasure to have a parcel from Blighty. The weather is lovely and the country looks beauti- ful it is a shame that this terrible war should spoil it. Private Toul Jones, France.—I received your parcel of cigs. sately and thank you very much for it. They came just before I went into the trenches and they put new life into me and kept me happy all the time. I was sorry to hear of so many Aber. boys having been killed and T think myself lucky to come out alive. I do not think the war will last long now, so you must cheer up and keep the home fires burning. Signaller R. Lewis, France.—A line or two in acknowledgment of parcel received yester- day. The system you have adopted to carry out such work as this is great, and you do not forget knybody, Ro please allow me to congratu-
