[Spellyans] keigwin's cornish

Here are two more versions of the Creed (with Welsh and Breton glosses  
from the Rev'd Harvey's book on Mullion, written in 1875.  Harvey says  
that he himself was taught to count and say the Lord's Prayer in  
Cornish as a child (presumably in Newlyn, as he mentions the town in  
the same sentence).  He gives no source for the second orthography,  
but this looks rather like Keigwin, as well, although a little  
different from the one I sent in earlier.  It's this version which is  
quoted verbatim by J. Harris Stone in 1905.
