'The Evangelicall Progresse, or Gospel Itenarie. Collected and compiled by S. K. Gent. Anno Salutis MDClxxxviiio.' This is the beginning of a long paraphrase of the Gospels, introducing as lemmata the whole of the Gospel text, and addressed to an imaginary Philothea. But the project stopped at fol. 116 with the healing of the man with a withered hand, and the rest of the volume is blank.

(fols. 1-24) contain an inchoate index.

The outside of the covers bears what seems to be a variation of the arms of the City of London (argent a cross gyronny of eight [perhaps not correctly cut] argent and vert, in the dexter chief a sword).
