    A very interesting piece of research malo lava Mr Brunt
    An envaluable work on the history of Frank Cornwall
    I am interested and trying to piece together how it could be
    linked to my grandfather Frank Cornwall Meredith the youngest
    son of Thomas Meredith Somehow I am fascinated and
    how I could piece together the information you provided regarding
    Jane could be linked to my grandfather or my great grandfather
    Thomas Meredith
    Hope someday I could meet up with you and to thank
    you for the hard work you have put into these historical
    and rich information on the early days of Samoa
