Notes

  • Scope and Contents

    Internal evidence suggests that the original essay was written circa 1732. It begins on folio 1, and is followed by a discussion on `patronage` (folio 28 verso), apparently a memorial by C Talbot for an unnamed litigant; and a copy ‘Memorial for Mr Thomas Linning, Min[?]. at Walstoun` (folio 30). The original of this memorial must have been written before Linning`s death in 1731.
