To Meet on Moonlit Nights


The Committee of Penzance Old Cornwall Society decided, on Thursday, to hold monthly meetings as usual and that these meetings shall be held on moonlight nights. Recently the society repainted the lettering of the inscription on the Dolly Pentreath monument at Paul and cleaned the granite. There were no fewer than 490 letters in the inscription, which includes a verse from the Bible in English and in Cornish.
