Other typescript copies are: Part I, chapters 12, 14, 16, 17; Part II, chapters 2 and 8; some miscellaneous pieces. There are 57 notebooks ofnotes and transcripts, copied by various hands from the Pub 1 ic Record Office, Privy Council Papers, War Office Papers, Board of Trade Journals, etc. These notebooks are numbered from 1 to 77 with missing numbers.
