Related materialThis document is a compilation of two documents deposited by Sir Hans Sloane into the manuscipts at the British Library. The first manuscript (3323) is signed and dated Thomas Martin 1659 and is the second half of the Royal Society manuscript starting with 'The might of the Father of Heaven'. The second manuscript (3329) forms the first part of the Royal Society manuscript, but is on different paper and written in a different hand and titled 'A Narrative of the Free Masons Word and Signs' with no name.
Sloane manuscript 3848 is very similar to RBO/9/81 in content, but was produced by Eduardu Sankey in 1646
