Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, containing notes on sermons and lectures heard by the writer, as well as excerpts from letters discussing spiritual matters. He notes an observation by Mr. Gifford concerning "the artifice of the papists in putting colourable pretences on their superstitions as if having more of holiness or reverence." He also records a sermon given by "Mr. Sherlock on the day of his Late Majesties Martyrdom. Being Jan. 31, 1675/6" which discusses God's providence "when seeming much to favour the wicked & afflict the good," upon which the writer comments, "I say he rather chose to insist hereupon than to spend his time in Invectives agst the Promoters of the late Rebellion." Other preachers whose sermons the writer heard include John Tillotson, Archbishop of Canterbury, William Sherlock, and Edward Fowler, Bishop of Gloucester.
