Additional Information

It seems probable that these copies formerly included those at Mss Eur G37/92/2 ff.60-63 below; certainly the final letter in this grouping seems to be concluded on the first folio of that, however this set of extracts contains only letters to Bisdom and his Council, whereas the other includes letters to other recipients.
