    Letter from Rev William Veale Hennah, chaplain of HMS Windsor Castle, to Davies Gilbert, dated 2 April 1831, from HMS Windsor Castle. The letter refers to various megalithic temple sites visited by the author, including Qrendi on Malta and the Giant's Tower on Gozo.

    With the letter are several pages of notes about antiquities from Gozo, and some drawings of them (see LDSAL2020.19.126-128).

    The letter and notes were read at the Society of Antiquaries meeting of 15 December 1831.
