James Morgan – To the Editor of the Free Press 1865

To the Editor of the Pontypool Free Press

25th February 1865

Sir, I have been informed that one James Morgan of Monkswood, stated on oath, last Saturday, before the justices of Pontypool, that my old bailiff, David Evans, was dismissed by me for some theft, with which I had charged him.

In that statement is not a particle of truth. Evans was dismissed simply because he happened, (though by no means an habitual drinker) to come to the house under the influence of drink, and it was the second offence.

Yours truly,

Thomas Evans

Rector of Goytrey
