Dear Ros
Thank you so much for all the information.
A lot of it, as regards the beer, is new to me.
I am in the process of cataloging a distant cousin's large collection, with the important aid of a computer-whizz cousin. This is very time- consuming. I admit I was delighted to find the 1770 psalm book. It is very fragile. I have started to photograph each page. I wish to show it , only the photographs, to an able musician contact here.
So when I have completed the task I will contact you again.. My friend has already sung out of the first page. The next day he came in with a book called' The old Church Gallery Minstrels' by K.H. Macdermot ARCM which was perfect on the subject.
Thank you again for the extra facets on Henry Bartholmew and James Nesmyth.
I will be in touch in due course when the photography is done.
