LETTER: H. Wynne Jones, Treiorwerth accepting the offer of the curacy of Bodedern which Mr Lloyd of Holyhead has communicated to him.
'Greatly to my Father's desire' he meant to come to reside at Treiorwerth as soon as possible and would take care to have Bodedern 'served in the meantime'. He understood that the salary from Jesus College was £40 and 2 small tenements purchased with Queen Anne's Bounty which were let for £16 the previous year, making £14 after deductions out of which 'my Father allowed the tenant £10 towards repairs'.
He reports the 'punctuality and zeal with which his Father discharged his duty ...... morning prayers and a sermon and evening prayers every Sunday through the year and prayers on Wednesdays and Fridays all through Lent; in addition to this a Sunday School had been established and supported at my Father's expense'.
As he would feel it incumbent on him to pursue the same course he asks for an increase in salary to £50.
In consequence of his father's zeal the Church is very fully attended and is in excellent order to which he had contributed largely in pecuniary donations and just previous to his decease to a service of plate for the communion.
