Journals, 1854-1896, of David Griffith serving as curate in various parishes throughout Wales, including Capel Curig and Llanbedr, Caernarfonshire; Pontrobert, Montgomeryshire; Aberdr and Hirwaun, Glamorganshire, Gaerwen, Pentraeth, Amlwch, Llanbedr-goch and Trefdraeth, Anglesey. These are written in good Welsh and English and include many descriptions of characters and situations. He is very opinionated, criticising individuals involved with the Church as well as the Church in general, and its Englishness. They provide a valuable insight into the life of a curate and his duties.
Also includes note books, newspaper cuttings, a summary of the contributions of David Griffith to the Welsh church press from 1873-1887 e.g. Yr Haul, Y Cymro and Y Cyfaill Eglwysig and notes on parishes, churches and parsons. A few letters also make up the collection, many written by Owen Williamson of Dwyran, Anglesey on various subjects, in particular on the snobbery of some church members.
