zine : —

" At Tan-y-bwlch, William Oakeley, esq.
The loss the inhabitants of the ' Happy
Yale', and its neighbourhood, have sus-
tained by his death, cannot easily be esti-
mated. The excellent roads formed under
his direction, through a district formerly
almost impassable, are known to every tra-
veller ; the tracts which he has fertilized,
the barren eminence which he has planted,
and, above all, the delightful exhibition of
Nature, in bold and picturesque scenery,
which his taste developed and adorned,
have afforded themes of rapture to every
visitor: his benificence has bettered the
condition, and made happy the dwelling, of
many a rustic ; and the memory of his pri-
vate goodness will long live in the bosoms
of las relatives and friends."
