Another Find... my 'cupboard cleaning' was a Bible which was presented to Ethel Dawson of Knotts, Todmorden in June 1904 - a Great Aunt of mine.
Lord Wharton’s Charity provides bibles to children and young people. It was founded in 1696 by Philip, 4th Lord Wharton (1613 – 1696). The only catch to this fine request was that potential candidates had to learn 7 Psalms by heart! These were Psalms 1, 15, 25, 37, 101, 113 and 145 - not an easy task. However today's recipients no longer need to recite the 7 Psalms by heart (although I suspect the charity would be impressed if they could!)
