  • Scope and Contents

    The notes are written on one side of the leaf only (watermark dated 1798), in an unidentified hand: brief additions are written in pencil on the versos of a few of the leaves by `WRR` (folio 38 verso), apparently William Rose Robinson of Clermiston, who was admitted advocate in 1804, and who was no doubt the next owner of the notes. A summary index of the subjects covered in the volume is written in the original hand at folio iii.
