A journal of George Fox the quaker's travels from London to the West Indies and New England, and back to Bristol, June 13, 1671-Apr. 28, 1673: beg. 'We sett out from London': apparently a shorter but independent form of the journal printed in 1694.

Mr. Coxe noted that the volume is 'said to be the autograph of Elwood the friend of Milton.'

(fols. 15-end) are blank.

Fox's name only occurs in a later hand on the outside of the front cover.

The cover is part of a parchment certificate of the marriage of William Wallis and Ann Amos, quakers, at Bristol in 1673.
