THE CAMBEIAN JOURNAL. ALB AN % 9 HEVIN. (SUMMEK SOLSTICE.) EXTRACTS FROM THE REGISTER OF SIR THOMAS BUTLER, VICAR OF MUCH WENLOCK, IN SHROPSHIRE. {Made for "private reference in the year 1840.) The following extracts from the Register of Sir Thomas Boteler, or Butler,, viear of Much Wenlock, in Shrop¬ shire, were not originally transcribed under a view of printing them, and therefore occasional liberties have been taken with the orthography. Sometimes the old spelling has been retained, and at others modernized. As the meaning and words have, however, been carefully re¬ tained, there will be little cause to regret the literal varia¬ tions that may have existed between the transcript and the original manuscript. Nor indeed would it be now possible to amend any mistakes of this description, as the Register itself is believed to have been destroyed at the calamitous fire that consumed the mansion of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynne, at Wynnstay, in the year 1859.
