language, from Patagonia to Australia, Spain to the
USA, and don't foget my beautiful Wales as well.
Here is a small collection of stories specially
delivered to this page by

Owen Morgan Edwards (26 December 1858 –
15 May 1920) was a Welsh historian, educationalist
and writer. He was often known as O. M. Edwards.
Owen Edwards was born in Llanuwchllyn near Bala,
the eldest son of Owen and Beti Edwards. Just down the road I live as
the deryn ddu flies
He gives a
vivid description of his early education in his
autobiography Clych Adgof ("Bells of Remembrance")
published in 1906. Llanuwchllyn was then and
remains a strongly Welsh-speaking area, but the
Welsh Not was in use at the local school and
usually found itself round Owen's neck,as a
punishment for speaking Welsh. He went on to change all this as his
carreer developed. The first story "DEL" will
explain some of this .
