    Charles Baxter, who acquired the papers after Young’s death, added notes and extracts of his own especially from kirk session and other records (folios 49 verso-74 verso ; folios 49 verso-58 verso derive ultimately from MS.Wod.Fol.XXXII, folios 290-293), and (folios 97-146) from sections 31 and 32 (xxxvi-xxxvii) of the Auchinleck Manuscript (Adv.MS.19.2.1, folios 263-277). Baxter was responsible for having this volume bound in covers similar to those of Adv.MSS.31.5.6-31.5.8.

    Many leaves are blank.
