The volume contains:
lists of household goods, 1864-1868 (folio 1);
a few diary entries, 1871 (folio 16);
an account of a visit to Braemar, 1873 (folios 24, 58);
an account of a tour in Switzerland, 1873 (folio 30);
and various literary, religious, and social observations, 1864-1875.
Some leaves were loose in the volume, and have been tipped in (folios 58-75); of these, folio 75 is an apparently unrelated recipe dated 1935.
