Hi Ellis

Are these letters you refer to translated into English.
Can you post them on the tread "Zulu war eye witness accounts" ? I understand if they are a work in progress and you are unable to.

May I ask, are you a descendant of Ellis Evans.

Regards Eddie

Hi Eddie

I'm not related to this individual; however, I have an interest in Welsh-language documents relating to the AZW. I'm still working on translations of this and other letters, but I will post it as and when I can.

Best,

Ellis (Paul)
