School," Aberystwyth. He was subsequently apprenticed to a draper at the latter town. It was here that he began to develop his powers of oratory, by delivering addresses on Missions and Sunday School work. He set his mind on becoming a preacher; but as the Methodist Colleges at Bala and Trevecca were not then in existence, he went to Highbury Congregational College, London. He entered the ministry and laboured for 15 years as pastor of Marlborough Congregational Chapel. On May 22, 1848, he became secretary of the Permanent and Universal Peace Society which had been established in 1816 and this post he held till his resignation on May 19, 1885. He took a leading part in the Peace Conferences of Brussels and Paris during the troubled years of 1848 and '49. In the prosecution of his duties he travelled the Continent of Europe, and was often set before princes." His labours brought him into close connection with such men as Elihu Burritt, Victor Hugo, de Tocqueville, Cobden, Bright, Edward Miall, Sir David Brewster, Dr. Dale and Prince Albert; and in his travels he also met theologians like Baur and Tholuck, and scientists like Von Humboldt and Liebig. He edited the Herald of Peace with conspicuous ability for many years. He rendered inestim- able service to Wales by contributing to the Morning and Evening Star, from Feb. to May, 1866, a series of very illuminating letters on the social and political condition of the Principality. These were very widely read and were an eye-opener to English politicians and statesmen. Welsh Intermediate and Higher Education owes him a debt which we cannot forget. His death occurred on Aug. 20, 1888, when on a visit to Treborth, near Bangor and his mortal remains were laid to rest on Aug. 24, in Abney Park Cemetery, London. He died, as it was most fitting that he should die, amongst his own people, within sight of the mountains of his native land which he loved with passionate affection, and in a house which had inherited the traditions of the great times in the history of Welsh Methodism. Henry Richard was a burning and a shining light, and God grant that for ages to come, his memory and his example may stand out like a guiding star to lead his countrymen and country- women along the path he loved to walk-the path of freedom, the path of righteousness, and the path of peace."
