  • Request

The MS. is evidently an autograph; but Rawlinson has inserted a loose slip of paper on which he has written "I find that Sir William Norris was not author of this journal."

At the end of the volume is an account of money received and expended to 15 Aug 1700, "at which time I left Metchlapatam."
