EGRYN SEERESS AT TREGARON
Tregaron, which is situated in the heart of Cardiganshire, was visited by Mrs. Jones, the Egryn seeress. She conducted a meeting at Llwynpiod, and all the way from Llwynpiod to Esgenhendy (writes a correspondent) the party were accompanied by a mysterious light, which in some places burst forth into a bright flame. The next evening she was at Blaenpenal. The meeting here again was full of the revival fervour, and it was ten o'clock before Mrs. Jones was given a chance to address the meeting.
Light was to be seen at Tregaron after the meeting there, and it continued for about three hours. It appeared in the sky right above Gwynfa, where Mrs. Jones if the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Evans. Mrs. Jones spends the day-time visiting the poor and the old and sick of the districts which she visits.

These lights were soon determined to be reflections from burning gorse, as detailed in the Weekly Mail (07/04/1906) and the London Welshman (14/04/1906).
