Correspondence Aberystwyth. November 16th, 1943. Dear Keidrych Rhys, I feel I ought to write at once and let you know that last week-end in Cardiff we decided to restart the Welsh Review." It will have to be a quarterly, of course our paper quota settles that-and I propose to follow much the same lines as of old. But the real purpose of my writing is that I shouldn't wish you to hear of this venture accidentally, from other sources. Mind, for quite a while back I've been contacting enough contributors to ensure that on the editorial side we were happily placed should we decide to restart, but we are now past the ifs and whens and buts and maybes. I'll be getting out a slip of some kind soon, and you shall have one. And I think you'll agree that there'll be no shortage of material for either of us. There's a positive mushroom field of contributors, and I don't doubt successive harvests from under the soil. There are some things I like very much in your Number Two. I'll admit I've been once or twice tempted to let an axe fall on the necks of Wyn Griffith and Merchant-for surely in Number One they laid them on the block ? Sincerely, GWYN JONES. Llanelly Rectory, Gilwern, Abergavenny. 20th September, 1943. Dear Mr. Keidrych Rhys, I have received and read the first number of Wales and have enjoyed it. May I make a suggestion that after the practice of Digests and Penguins a brief biographical sketch might be given of the chief writers. The Anglo-Welsh is a new school and are unknown to a large number of us. I understand now that Mr. W. M. Merchant is a young clergyman in the diocese of Monmouth. To re-read his article in the light of that knowledge seemed to add a great deal to it. I am glad to find that Welsh clergy are interested in all Welsh movements. Yours sincerely, D. Parry-Jones. "Hafan," Llanbadarnfawr, Aberystwyth. Tachwedd 2, 1943. Annwyl Mr. Keidrych Rhys, Gwelaf yn Horizon fod ail rifyn Wales yn cael ei baratoi. Y mae'r rhifyn cyntaf gennyf ond erbyn holi yn fy siop arferol (Jack Edwards) deallaf na cheir yr ail yno. Amgaeaf archeb post (10/-) yn danysgrifiad am y chwech rhifyn nesaf, gan ddechrau o Rif 2. Cefais lawer o fwynhad allan o'r rhifyn cyntaf a gobeithiaf y caiff y Wales hwn fywyd hir. Yr oedd yn flin gennyf golli Welsh Review ac fel un sy'n derbyn bron bob cylchgrawn Cymraeg gresynwn ei bod mor anodd cadw un cylchgrawn Saesneg yn fyw yng Nghymru. Yn gywir iawn, EVAN D. JONES.
