(b) A transcript of Dr Thomas Wiliems's preface to his Dictionary. (c) 'Extracts out of a large folio pedigree book at Llannerch', pp. 910-921. (d) 'Llyma ddosbarth kerdd dant ...', 'Llyma bed[war] Mesur ar hugain cerdd dant', etc. For the latter see The Myvyrian Archaiology of Wales, Vol. III (London, 1807), p. 445. Cf. also Iolo A. Williams MSS 15, 136. (e) 'Cerdd Dannau - Extracts from an old Manuscript of Sr Wat Wms Wynne.' See op. cit., p. 625. (f) A copy of the Commission [a note subsequently added reads 'i.e. the Copy from whence this was taken'] was Copied Exactly from the Original now at Mostyn AD 1693, where the Silver Harp also is'. (g) Three sketches of John Parry's harp, 1755, together with eight lines from a cywydd 'I ofyn telyn gan Jenkin Trevor o drefalun i Sion, q. W. Lleyn' beginning, 'O untant i wythdant oedd'.

Iolo Morganwg has noted the contents on the cover and at the top of the first page. He has also written some observations on the pedigrees in c above.
