OLD NUMERAL FORMS. In Volume XIV of the Society's Transactions reference is made in Chapter XIX, p. 159, to old numeral forms which were in use at Capel Dewi and at Llwchwr. I have recently, and before seeing the Society's Volume, come across a set of similar numerals which appears to be more complete than either of those quoted. This set is as follows 1 eini 11 1 einibas 2 beini 12 beinibas 3 bari 13 baribas 4 batri 14 batribas 5 bim 15 bymffas 6 eithi 16 einibymffas 7 ceithi 17 beinibymffas 8 cari 18 baribymffas 9 catri 19 batribymffas 10 cing 20 eica These numerals were obtained from Mrs. Jones of Fronhaul, Llwyngroes, aged 78 years. She remembers hearing them in her childhood at her home in Bwlchffin, Llanbadarn Odwyn. I am assured that there were further numerals, which Mrs. Jones now unfortunately cannot recall. Pont Llanio. JOHN E. Morris. INSCRIBED SLATES FROM STRATA FLORIDA. MEMBERS of the Society who attended the meeting at Strata Florida on 26 June 1948 will remember the inscribed slates of local origin which were there and then exhibited. Thirty-five pieces of slate or stone have now been deposited at the National Library of Wales by the Ministry of Works, with the consent of the Representative Body of the Church in Wales as owners of the abbey site. The slates and slabs have been discovered by the curator, Mr. Rhys Jones, who takes pains to examine every piece of slate uncovered in the course of excavation and clearing of debris. It is character- istic of his care that he brought the slates to the National Library packed in fresh fragrant mowings from the well-kept Abbey lawns. The first slate discovered contained accounts relating to the Abbey's grange of Hafodwen, which lay roughly inside a line drawn from Gartheli to Ciliau Aeron on the north and continued by Dihewyd to Cribyn and back to Gartheli by way of Silian and Betws Bledrws. This slate is inscribed with the names of seventeen tenants of the grange, followed by a number and the letters tr.' The letters probably stand for the word trugg,' a dry measure equivalent to two bushels. The record is presumably of dues (probably of oats or oatmeal) payable to the Abbey by the tenants. I think it can be proved fairly conclusively that this slate, and the majority of the literary slates which were discovered later, belong to the seventies
