(Fo. 2) 'Octob. 1710'; (fo. 155r) statistics of English Catholic clergy and laity put to death in each reign from Elizabeth I to Charles I; (fo. 207) notes headed 'Dr. Hawardin Contr: Sacr: Poeniten:'; (fo. 215v) further extracts from the same author upon other sacraments; (fo. 224) copy of a letter from E.
