A 1962 talk about That Urn and what Richard might or might not have done ….

I apologise in advance for posting this in so many picture files, but the manuscript of Dr Lyne-Pirkis’ 1962 speech about the urn in Westminster Abbey was sent to me, page by page, in PDF format. I couldn’t work out how to post them, so turned them all into separate JPEGs They come courtesy of a friend in the US, who found it on going through some old papers. She is a Ricardian, but slightly lapsed, and still has some of her memorabilia.

Apologies too for some of the words/attitudes used in the speech – things were a little different in 1962 – not very p.c.

    I cannot read this without a struggle. Is there any way that the images could be posted in a larger format? Or could some intrepid soul type it out for posting again?

    I struggled to get it all done as it is – the thought of typing it all out terrifies me! But, can’t you magnify the size of the page with the plus/minus percentage thingie? I can, and get the text as large as I need. Hope this works for you.
