William Wotton's English mishnayos--I think I need another blog for this

Here are the first three pages of an interesting work by William Wotton, published in 1718. It is a translation of mishnayos Shabbos and Eruvin titled "Miscellaneous discourses relating to the traditions and usages of the scribes and pharisees in our blessed saviour Jesus Christ’s time."

Bet you didn't know there was an English mishnayos 290 years ago!

These things are too interesting and too important not to be more widely known. But these types of posts take up so much space. I'm considering maintaining a second blog for this stuff. Stay tuned.
