First....Yes don my 39th...OF COURSE...wink..wink!
Second TY Ellen....and before I say more I need to correct myself. I
referred to the person who wrote me as "a woman" (a name that could be either so
I just assumed DUH me!). My cousin answered me after I told him about the
"letter" and said he knew this gentleman quite well. He is a retired
clergyman who is in charge of the Archives! His last name was similar to one of
the families that my John Armstrong married. Seems he IS from that same area
in Donegal. The world just keeps getting smaller! lol
He got my name from a list at the Wesleyan Historical Society which is in
Belfast, I believe. I do not remember how my name got there (lol) but if I
know "me"...I most likely wrote them awhile back! You see I write everywhere
with the hopes of one day something will come of it....AND it DID!
Update is.....This kind gentleman has indeed sent me (attached file) a copy
of the actual letter that James Copeland , from Warragul, Australia, wrote
back to Crookshank in response to Crookshank's letter to him requesting
any memories James had of Methodism and the ministers during the early to mid
1800's....and this wonderful gentleman has also sent a transcription of
what it says!!!!! I am now in the process of reading it.
I must tell you...it does send shivers through me to see his handwriting.
What a great "39th" (wink) Birthday present! lol
