A volume containing a holograph translation made in 1810 by the Reverend Ebenezer Richard (1781-1837), Calvinistic Methodist minister, of Tregaron, etc., of an unknown Welsh treatise written in support of the Ordination movement. The title-page reads: 'The Complaint of the Calvinistic Methodists in Wales On account of their being destitute of the Ordinances of Christ in his Churches, viz. Baptism and the Supper of the Lord. Translated from the Ancient British 1810'. According to the dedicatory letter, the translation was undertaken at the request of Ebenezer Richard's friend and patron, Captain James Bowen of Cardigan and subsequently of Llwyn-gwair, Pembrokeshire.
