One Tower is all which now remains of that Edifice." The Rev. JOHN WALTERS, A. M., an eminent Welsh Divine and Critic, was Rector of Llan Doch; and died in the year 1797. His chief labour was the compilation of a valuable English and Welsh Lexicon, which he published in one large Quarto volume in 1794. He also wrote a Dissertation on the Welsh language, besides some Sermons. "
