Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Myllin Literary and Debating Society of Llanfyllin, Montgomeryshire, produced its first magazine, edited by H.J. Williams, in February 1898. This issue stated that the aim of the magazine, which consisted of the literary contributions of its very young members, was to supplement the work that the society was doing at meetings. This included improvement of members' intellectual abilities and their development as useful citizens and good men and women which will enable us to live side by side in this world, without bitterness and hostility.
Nine issues in this collection, numbers 7-15, were printed and distributed as part of a localised edition of monthly magazines such as Household Words, or The Home Messenger.
Material was received on different occasions, arranged in chronological order and incorporated into the General Collection of Bangor Manuscripts .
