Notes


 1. This elaborate capital P is not quite the combined GP device seen in GEO/ADD/3/82/3, /4, /5.
 2. These trial signatures are written horizontally across the page in ink. There is a pen trial written vertically at the left, and various other doodles in pencil.
 3. This date is written vertically on the left-hand side of the page, in the opposite orientation to the name(s) on the right.
 4. These words are written vertically on the right-hand side of the page in ink. Various other doodles across the page are in faint pencil.

Editorial declaration: First edited in the project 'Unlocking the Mary Hamilton Papers' (Hannah Barker, Sophie Coulombeau, David Denison, Tino Oudesluijs, Cassandra Ulph, Christine Wallis & Nuria Yáñez-Bouza, 2019-2022).

All quotation marks are retained in the text and are represented by appropriate Unicode characters. Words split across two lines may have a hyphen on the first, the second or both fragments (reco-|ver, imperfect|-ly, satisfacti-|-on); or a double hyphen (pur=|port, dan|=ger, qua=|=litys); or none (respect|ing). Any point in abbreviations with superscripted letter(s) is placed last, regardless of relative left-right orientation in the original. Thus, Mrs. or Mrs may occur, but M.rs or Mr.s do not.
