Both sets of notes (c. 1748 and 1769) describe the need for an improvement to the catalogue for the books from the Norfolk Library deposited at the Royal Society.

Side 2: Brief notes, seemingly related to an analysis of the Norfol Library:

"Nos. actually wanting
Two or more books with the same number
No. wanting if not found in"
