"The arms that you wield now are not such as your forefathers wielded; but they are infinitely more effective, and infinitely more irresistable" ~ Cymru Fydd leaflet, 1890

Cymru Fydd

I came across a Cymru Fydd leaflet on the People's Collection of Wales website and thought it was worth sharing. The leaflet itself is from 1890 but much of it could have been written yesterday.

I especially like the closing sentence. "The arms that you wield now are not such as your forefathers wielded; but they are infinitely more effective, and infinitely more irresistible."

Over 120 years later just think of the extra arms that we have to wield. You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them, if you still have trouble reading them then use the People's Collection website which has a built in 'magnifying glass'.
