At fo. 67v is yet another recipe in a crude 17th cent. hand, also to be found in scribblings inside the back cover. fo. 68: wanting.

This is followed by medical recipes written in another hand, fos 68-76 and 84v, the last of which is dated 1706. On fo. 1 in the second hand is 'John Fry / Wooburne / Beddfordshire', and opposite in the same hand 'Hic Liber est meus'. Most of the versos are blank. Loose in the book are accounts on a slip of paper dated 6 April 74.
