October 30th 1795
We have received a letter from Mr. W. C----, attorney-at-law, at the Hay, Breconshire, informing us of a very remarkable appearance which was seen there a few days ago, by one John Morgan, an intelligent man at twilight in the evening, as he was setting plants in his garden, of a representation of a large church with many spires arising out of the earth, and also the appearance of an angelic form very glorious, his countenance shining brighter than gold, sitting on a wonderful beast not to be described; the brightness illuminating the earth all around, and particularly toward the parish of Clirow, in Radnorshire, and which in about fifteen minutes vanished away.
As the matter has been the subject of much conversation there, Mr. C. says he has heard the relation from Morgan more than once, and it is the opinion of some persons that this appearance portends good things to come, for this nation in particular, not only universal peace, but, righteousness. We do not pretend to make any other comment on this phenomenon, than it might probably be only the effect of some electric fluid, causing a vapor to arise out of the ground.
