Scope and content

Three pages of an incomplete draft in the hand of Morgan Llwyd of a dialogue between an old man and a child concerning the Bible. The old man's last question is about the books read by the child (' ... mi fynwn wybod beth a ddyscaist oddiwrth y llyfrau a ddarllenaist'). It is not answered. The dialogue was probably never finished, as there is a blank space for a title at the head of the first page.
