Menai Bridge (1859)



There is yet one county left unnoticed—the last, but not the least in importance—the county of Anglesea. This little island has long been remarkable for the number of its sanctuaries, its communicants, and its Sabbath-schools. Not a little has been said respecting its liberality to the Bible Society, averaging nearly four pence each, from its fifty thousand inhabitants. Now it bids fair to increase in all these things. From MenaiBridge to Holyhead, from Newborough to Amlwch, from Linas Point to Llanddona Head, along that coast rendered so sadly memorable by the wreck of the Royal Charter, the revival spirit is felt, and a great moral revolution is now being effected in the hearts and lives of many of its inhabitants.
