    Alison:
    Your website is well organized, wonderfully helpful and most interesting.
    My thanks to you for your transcriptions of censuses and especially of wills, particularly for this one of the will of David Evans of Red House,Trefeglwys, which I could not find at first on the National Library website.
    I take the liberty in a friendly way to point out two typos, a small omission and a repetition:
    l. 2 Montogmery, l. 9 Diary l. 17 Powell _of_ Dolwen
    lines 37 (just after Kinsey) to 39 (including Kinsey) are a repetition.
    You have of course undertaken a Herculean task, and with a very high degree of accuracy.
    Best wishes,
    Peter.
