The first part of her notebook contains a number of cooking recipes and medical cures, some dated, some in other hands, and some signed with initials or names, for example: "For the Ring Worm - Duchess of Gordon, " "Lady Montagu's Excellent remedy for a cough, " "Lady Calthorpe's receipt for a cough of long-standing." Other entries include preparations for coloring rooms, preventing moths in fur and wool, and fixing chalk drawings. At the end of the notebook are 16 pages signed C.M. describing a tour of the Lake District during August-September, 1807 or 1808.
