 Item
Identifier: Coll-98/3/4/2

Scope and Contents

Although there is a notebook with the same title in this collection (B26), they do not appear to be the same text, with this notebook being titled 'II', presumably meaning 'part 2'.
This notebook seems to contain a more detailed discussion about the translation of the Bible to Scottish Gaelic, including linguistic challenges facing the translators.
