      When I get a chance I'll try and take a couple of pictures for you
      Linda. As I said, the surface of the 1812 stone is still in very good
      condition so I should be able to transcribe the entire inscription.

      There are others mentioned on the newer stone but I did not want to
      spend any time until you confirmed if I had the ones you were
      interested in. I don't recall any other BIRNIE stones beside them
      which Alex's information would suggest but I'll look more closely
      when I go back.

      Regards,

      Roy
