Scope and Content

gives directions as to his wishes regarding his interment including request that 'the surgeons may make any use of my body either by examination or dissection that they may judge likely to promote the ends of science' and thereafter that his funeral at Ruabon should be as simple and inexpensive as possible and that the pall-bearers should be given £5 each 'for the purchase of a remembrance instead of rings, hat-bands, scarves or such nonsense,' (with further note added 18 June 1830).
