Pembroke, circa 1760. Approximately 145-pages of manuscript, remainder blank, 4to (9 1/2 x 7 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches), contemporary vellum, lacking backstrip, boards soiled and chipped, ten inner margins reinforced with fine muslin tape.

The volume partly comprises biblical commentary and extracts, an 8-page account of Charles the 12th of Sweden etc. However there are retained copies of lively family letters addressed to his sister, and cousin. His long letter to his sister dated St. Brides, May 14th 1762 is of 11-pages 4to and there is obviously some dispute and ill feeling between he and she - "I am greatly troubled to receive from a sister (whom I have always respected & loved, as sincerely as I have you) a letter penned in such an unkind and unchristian strain, as that which I have rec'd from you this Day ............ I endeavour to recollect how many vile abominable Lies have been told upon your poor Brother Joshua to you by Madam Williams of Pembroke. How good that Authority is, you ought know best as she is y'r own Daughter..........Here is a small list of her lies: For it is impossible for me to remember them all. No.1. Your son David was to be poisoned the first time he came to St. Brides .............. No.3. That I was always railing at her Father & called him a Rogue .........." etc. etc. Another retained copy is to his, "Dear Cousin Roche" dated St. Brides Dec. 9th 1762 (8-pages).

There follows a 4-page transcript of a "Letter to John Allen of Cresselly from his brother Joshua, Chaplain to Sir. T. Robinson, Ambassador at Vienna", family matters and "A short Supplement to the Account of the Campaign" - " Out of 87 or near 90,000 effective men that the Emperor had exclusively of what were in garrison, he has not now half that number that are capable of doing service ............" etc. Giving the source of his information as being our "Minister in Berlin". The original of this letter is loosely inserted but now damaged with some loss.

Together with transcripts of letters from John Allen of Cresselly to Peggy Allen, "a daughter who became Mrs. Abram Leach" dated 1748, (7-pages and 4-pages). Also "A Copy of ye Patent granted by That Best of Women & of Princesses, The Good Queen Ann to my uncle Joseph Allen of Dale for erecting St. Ann's Lighthouse in Pembrokeshire". 9-pages 4to.
