The volume also contains extracts of two letters, ?circa 1690, concerning the attitude of James VII towards the Church of England (folio 1), and `Some additional Characters of the chief of the last Ministry`, 1715, signed M S (folio 3). The characters, which are apparently copied from another manuscript, are of Bolingbroke, Stafford, the Bishop of London and others. The annotations, written
between 1781 and 1797, are signed `M.` and `E.M.` and are mostly copies of notes by Jonathan Swift, taken from his own copy of Macky`s ‘Memoirs’. According to a note on the front flyleaf, the original notes were used in the supplement to Swift`s ‘Works’ by John Nichols.
