"O ABERAERON I LANBEDR.-Penderfynodd eglwys fechan Aberaeron roddi pleserdaith i blant yr ysgol Sabbothol dydd Mawrth, Hydref 30ain. Cludwyd hwy yn rhad ac am ddim gan y brawd da Abraham Jones, Gambia Inn, Aberaeron, 26 mewn nifer. Cawsant lawnder o bob danteithion angenrheidiol ar y ffordd ac yn Llanbedr. Mwynhasant eu hunain yn y modd goreu. Cariwyd pob peth yn mlaen yn llwyddianus dan arweiniad y Parch John Davies. Credwn y bydd yr orymdaith yn foddion i'w clymu gyda'r gwaith da, a hefyd i chwanegu eu rhifedi." Seren Cymru 16 Nov 1894
