Washi at Valley Hospital
by: William Gerwyn

Annwyl Eleri

I thank you very much for your correspondence to Anglesey Hidden Gem.

I have made a copy of that document and it is in my files somewhere(!). I must find it.

It is a brief description of Washi Bach's visit to the hospital and of the kindness and care he received there. Washi Bach would have been familiar with the hospital, which used to be the old workhouse. There was another in Llanerchymedd on the Rhosybol and Amlwch end of the village.

Considering the cruelty that appears to have been built into the system, Washi Bach's reception on the occasion mentioned above would have been a world apart from that guaranteed by the old Vagrancy Acts.

It is a kind and reassuring document of the pity and respect in which he was regarded.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to write in.

I send you and all you hold dear my very best wishes.

Stay safe. Cadwch yn ddiogel.

William Gerwyn
