Scope and content
Nine letters, 1827-1832, from the Reverend Samuel Roberts ['S.R.'], seven to his parents (addressed 'Rev. John Roberts, Llanbrynmair') and two to the Reverend Edward Davies, Newtown, the places from which they were written (in chronological order rather than order of binding) being Fountain-Hall, Cwm Tawy, St. Julian's Friars [Shrewsbury], Birmingham, Daventry, Attercliffe (with a note also from the Reverend J. W. H. Pritchard), [Wern and Oswestry], London (2), and Kilvey House near Swansea. In 1828 Samuel Roberts was collecting money [towards discharging a debt on Carno chapel, co. Montgomery (see NLW MS 14062B)] and in the early part of 1829 he was in London collecting money, probably for a different cause; there are letters belonging to the same period in NLW MS 590C. Other subjects mentioned include Drych [y dadleuwr] by [Richard Jones, Wern, Llanfrothen], and various meetings in London and elsewhere.
