I get the following output running with that:

[david at localhost tex]$ latex big2.tex
This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.4.5)
LaTeX2e <2001/06/01>
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for american, french, german, 
ngerman, n
ohyphenation, loaded.
Document Class: article 2001/04/21 v1.4e Standard LaTeX document class
(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/misc/type1cm.sty) (./big2.aux))
Runaway argument?
! File ended while scanning use of \end.
<inserted text>
<*> big2.tex


Many thanks for all your help with this - I'm sure this must be possible
