A volume of cuttings from Welsh and Welsh American newspapers compiled by John Jones ('Myrddin Fardd'). The titles include 'Barddoniaeth a Beirdd' (Llithiau XVIII, XXI, XXVII, XXVIII, XXXI) by [Dafydd Rhys Williams] 'Index', 'Y Diweddar D. Williams, As' [Castell Deudraeth, Merionethshire], 'Y Diweddar Barch. Morris Williams (Nicander)' (several obituary notices), 'Ieuan Brydydd Hir' (his clerical institutions), 'Y Diweddar Barch. Morris Roberts, Remsen, N.Y.', 'Y Proff. Morris D. Jones, Janesville, Wis.', 'Ben. Thomas Williams, Ysw. Yr Aelod Seneddol Newydd dros Fwrdeisdrefi Caerfyrddin a Llanelli', etc. There are two labels laid on the outer upper cover, the one numbered '15' and the other in the hand of 'Myrddin Fardd' inscribed 'Y diweddar Barch. Morris Roberts, Remsen, Richard Jones y Wern a John Elias. - Hanes dyddorol am danynt, yn agos i'r diwedd.' The volume was originally used by 'Myrddin Fardd' to record material on local history, and on some of the pages on which he has not mounted his cuttings there are transcripts of memorial and other inscriptions from Penmorfa [Parish] Church and notes on John Williams, Llecheiddior.
