Repertorium poeticum and Codd. MSS. Britannicorum Catalogus,

A manuscript in the autograph of the compiler, Moses Williams. The first part, entitled 'Repertorium Poeticum', contains poetry, the names of the poets arranged in alphabetical order and the first lines of the poems given under the authors' names, with references to sources but without regard to the alphabetical order of the first word in the said lines: this work therefore differs from Williams's Repertorium Poeticum ... (London, 1726), where the lines are arranged in the alphabetical order of the first word, and the author's name is added at the end of every line. The second part of the manuscript, entitled 'Codd. MSS. Britannicorum Catalogus', contains an attempt to indicate the manuscript sources of certain Welsh subjects, which are arranged alphabetically.
The references are more or less confined to manuscripts at the British Museum and at Jesus College, Oxford, to those belonging to John Powell of Talgarth (for whom see Llanstephan MSS 27, 41, 45, 62), and to those belonging to Moses Williams himself.

Welsh proverbs,

A manuscript in the autograph of Moses Williams containing Welsh proverbs translated into Latin. Inside the front cover is inscribed: 'Transcribed out a MS. writ by Dr Davies. The Drs.' First and Second Translations are in the Harleian Library. There is another Copy with additions by Mr Vaughan of Hengwrt.' The transcript is mostly written on one side only of the folios, leaving the other side for the many additions made by the transcriber. After f. 97 there are five leaves of additions on paper of a smaller size, and ff. 129-138 contain 'additional Proverbs by Mr. W. Langford late Parson of Llan fawr communicated by the Rev. Mr. Ball Vicar of Northop'.
This collection of proverbs is fuller than the one printed by Dr John Davies at the end of his Dictionary.
