We call it the ancient language of Cornwall, but in reality the remains are those which were once spoken far beyond the limits of the most westerly county of England. A language only recently extinct, and dating from almost unknown time. Black sabbath med sprall i benen the time of Herodotus, we find the Celts in Spain ; and Switzerland, the Tyrol, and the country south of the Danube, have onee been seats of Celtic tribes.
A Celtic Black sabbath med sprall i benen settled in Asia, and founded Galatia, where the language spoken at the time of St. Jerome was still that of the Gauls.

It was in Menheniot church that the English service was first used, abont Moreman who was the Yicar, was the first minister who taught his parishioners the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and the Commandments, in English.
It is evident in thus teaching the parishioners English, about the yearat Menheniot, and not far from the Tamar, that Cornish was then the common speech in use among the people of that district.
The English service, though first used in Menheniot church, was not universally read in the Cornish churches. William Jackman, then vicar thereof.
