    Excerpt from Byron-Shelley-Keats, in Memoriam Endowed Yearly Prizes: Prize Essays by Competitors; 4th Set

    IN the spring of the year 1846, upon a fine May day, there was a break in upon the dull monotony of life at Merthyr. The sound of work, of the incessant blazing fires, and of the thud of the huge hammers, and the passing to and fro of the army of labour, many as black as night, came to a welcome pause. And thousands literally abandoned work and home, and thronged for miles down the Cardiff Road, for the news had gone forth that Mr. Robert Crawshay was coming home that day, and bringing with him his bride. Few men were more popular than the great ironmaster, and there was a hearty desire to welcome him home. And, in ad dition, there was a certain spice of curiosity, not con fined altogether to the gentler sex, for the rumour was that She was very beautiful, and would have adorned the noblest house in the land. So down the road went the thousands, some carrying stout cords. It was not fitting, said they, that the master and his wife Should come by train. The carriage must be drawn by lusty fellows, and the cheers of loyal-hearted men Should make the hills resound. And it was done.
