Pwdre Ser.


THE article on “Pwdre Ser” in your issue of June 23 has brought to my remembrance a tale of a shooting star which fell upon a connection of mine many years ago. The man was working in the field, when a mass of jelly fell upon him. I discredited the story at the time; but this article seems to lend weight to the story. I believe the man was unhurt. The occurrence happened in Wales.
