Scope and content

A collection of notebooks loosely sewn together to form a volume containing holograph sermons mainly if not all by the Reverend Thomas Richards (1754-1837), rector of Darowen. With one exception the sermons are in Welsh. A few are dated, 1817-37, and some noted, in pencil, as being preached at Llangynyw or at Darowen, Llanwddyn (one) and Hirnant (cf. Cwrtmawr MS 268B). The miscellaneous papers include an account of the sale of the effects of [? Mr R. Davies], 20 April 1840 (where localities are given for the purchasers they are mainly from the Llanwddyn area in Montgomeryshire), short treatises on Loyalty and Numeration, a printed circular letter, 1870, from the bishop of St Asaph appealing for donations and annual subscriptions to the St Asaph Diocesan Board of Education, a printed list of subscribers, 1847, to the Powis Testimonial Fund, and one verse entitled 'Carol Plygain ar Falldod Dolgellau 1813'.
