PREFACE.

TO THE READERS OF THE CAMBRIAN :

As the present number completes another volume of THE CAMBRIAN, We desire, in the first place, to express our grateful thanks to our friends and subscribers for the support and patronage so kindly accorded to THE CAMBRIAN during the year. Not only has our list of subscribers increased during year, but we have reason to believe that THE CAMBRIAN is being read by larger number and with greater interest than ever before. This is gratify. ing to us, and tends to show that our relations during 1888 have been mutually pleasant and profitable.

We have endeavored to furnish our readers with valuable and useful reading matter, tending both to instruct and interest then in the history and movements of our own nationality, and also to promote their social, moral and religious advancement. And we think it is not too much to say that THE CAMBRIAN contains articles on various question which will prove of permane nt interest, and far exceeding in value the annual subscription price. As a repository of reliable information on matters pertaining to our own nationality in the English language, it supplies a need and occupies a field peculiarly its own, which is not taken up by any other Magazine either in Wales or in this country, so that in years to come it will contain a vast amount of information not easily found elsewhere. For this reason, as well as for others, we would urge our subscribers to carefully preserve and bind THE CAMBRIAN in volumes for the convenience of future reference.

In our efforts to improve and enlarge the circulation of THE CAMBRIAN, we have been assisted by many of our friends and patrons, whose kindly offices and encouragement we greatly appreciate. And with their continued. favor, we shall endeavor to further improve THE CAMBRIAN for the next year. Among the special features of THE CAMBRIAN for 1889, will be a new serial story of thrilling interest entitled, "Owen Glendower, or Gwalia's Last Struggle;" Portraits and Sketches of Prominent Welshmen; Chapters on Welsh History, Language, &c.; Columns for Young People; and articles on special subjects by prominent writers.

We shall be greatly obliged to our subscribers for their continued favors to THE CAMBRIAN, and for their aid in extending its circulation among
