Edward Richard showed his first pastoral to Ieuan Brydydd Hir , Lewis Morris , and Richard Morris , and it was first published in the 1767 Almanac of Gwilym Howel . In 1776 there was published in Shrewsbury , by J. Eddowes , Bugeilgerdd, Yr Ail yn y Iaith Gymraeg gan Edward Richard. Awdur y Guntaf . Bound up with this in a copy in the National Library is a manuscript copy (though not in the author's handwriting) of the ‘first’ pastoral; Ieuan Brydydd Hir 's translation of this pastoral into English will be found in Panton MS. 2 (193-200) . Morris Williams ( Nicander ) , in his edition of Gwaith Dafydd Ionawr , has attributed one of Edward Richard 's englynion to Dafydd Ionawr . Edward Richard is the author of the englyn which Saunders Lewis has printed in his book, A School of Welsh Augustans , and N.L.W. MS. 5487 , ‘ Diaries of the Rev. Timothy Davies ’ (son of David Davis , Castellhywel ) proves that this is so. See the two englynion in Blodeugerdd o'r Ddeunawfed Ganrif , 35. Edward Richard 's works were printed in 1803 , 1811 , 1813 , 1851 , 1856 , and ‘ Cyfres y Fil ,’ 1912 ; and several of his letters appear in Additional Morris Letters .
