For those wishing to know: a rather strange sermon from 1814 from John 
Church (1780-1833): he picks a phrase in the Old Testament about 
twenty-nine knifes, says he believes they stand for something, and then 
lists 29 things.  He then has another go without another 29 items.   When 
Church was imprisoned later he said he came up with a new sermon every 
day, and I think in this case, he was out of ideas.  Mind you, a good 

All the best,
Cold and overcast England
