posted in: Newspapers | 0

The Rev. William Ellis, Calvanistic Methodist minister, Beddgelert, whilst speaking at a church meeting on Friday night, complained of being unwell, and not able to proceed any further. He was then seen to fall on his side. Dr. Evans, Portmadoc, was sent for, but the reverend gentleman never regained consciousness, and died on Saturday morning, from apoplexy. He was 68 years old, and had been a successful pastor for many years.
