Jones, G. Lloyd,

Bangor. Informs EMH that the Rev. Llewelyn Lloyd was born in Tanygrisiau and was not "a son of Anglesey" as mentioned in the Post. He was the first baby to be professionally delivered by the late Dr R. D. Evans. During the [First World] War, Lloyd was a Chaplain in France, and deputised for a colleague at the funeral of an officer who had been killed, whom he subsequently discovered to be the son of Dr Evans, Lieutenant Deio Evans, "after whom 'Hedd Wyn' wrote the englyn which later found its way on to his own memorial".

Jones, G. O,

Dartmoor Convict Prison. Encloses a manuscript [A/1619a] reporting the case of the recent death of a conscientious objector at Dartmoor, and the lack of medical attention received by such prisoners. With an additional manuscript, a copy of the above [A/1619b]. Welsh.

Roberts, J. Bryn,

Liberal MP, Caernarfonshire South, 1885-1906. Vice-Chairman, Welsh Liberal Federation. Bangor / Cardiff. Arrangements to meet a journalist from Y Genedl to discuss a matter relating to school funding [A/3004]. The writer also arranges to meet EMH to discuss the [First World] War [A/3005-6], and comments on an article he has written for Y Goleuad, expressing his desire for peace (included is a cutting from the paper). He remarks at the current financial position of the country, which is overshadowed by the war, and anxiously awaits the budget speech [A/3011]. The remaining letters are described individually in the former schedule, 'E. Morgan Humphreys Papers, A List', available in hard copy at NLW. English and Welsh.
