Scope and Content

Sections 205-344 of the third part, forming quire ‘4’. Not paged, but headed by Baxter himself. A like note occurs in Sylvester’s handwriting: by whom the last paragraph is numbered ‘332’. The number of the next intended paragraph is set down ‘345’ but the rest of the leaf is left blank. Printed in Rel. iii. 87-177. A marginal note dated 1684-5 occurs at f 55. (Now folio 103). The letter to Dr Good (dated ‘London, Feb 20. 1673’) is inserted between ff 56-59 on a sheet of smaller paper in William Baxter’s handwriting. (Now missing from Treatises xxii). See the note about Dr Good among Baxter’s MS Letters.
