Help deciphering Bible inscription please
« on: Thursday 19 February 09 22:52 GMT (UK) »
I think I have worked out most of the wording but any ideas on the word before 'Dying Lord'.

"The gift of his Father Feb 6th 1837
May the perusal of it add a Blessing to his ???? Dying Lord &
is the wish of his Affectionate Father"

Hi Sue,
What message are you getting when you try to attach it?
Is it because the file is too big?

Yes - that is exactly what I did.  Browsed and then clicked on the file I wanted to attach - pretty sure it wasn't too big.

Hi Sue,
I remember my first postings with attachments, so I can sympathise.
I generally open the file I want using Microsoft picture manager and then, using the edit picture facility compress it so that it is under the required size 500KB.
Once it is under that size I don't generally have any problems in attaching it, so I can't understand why, if it is under 500KB, why it isn't loading.
Can anybody else suggest anything, please?
Paulene :)

Sorry, no idea why it isn't loading...strange that no message is coming up when you try to post the photo, Sue - if the file's too big you usually get a message saying so.

Check the photo and see what the file size is - as Paulene says, it needs to be under 500kb to be able to be posted here - and let us know  :)

It's a jpeg 79kb - can't understand what I am doing wrong.
