MINUTES OF THE EAST GLAMORGANSHIRE CONFERENCE
The quarterly meeting of this conference was held in the White Lion Inn in Merthyr Tydfil on the 6th of January. The representation of the conference was found to be as follows: 22 branches, containing 130 elders, 90 priests, 104 teachers, and 47 deacons; baptized since the last meeting, 145, the total 2108. One was ordained to the important office of high priest for the first time in Wales, under the hands of Pres. Phillips, Abel Evans and William Howells. Excellent teachings were received from the mouths of Pres. A. Evans, Wm. Howells and others, which caused all to rejoice. Because of the number of listeners, a meeting was also held in Georgetown for the English; but even then the two halls were too small to contain so many.
