W[illia]m Smith, late surgeon of the 'Syren', was probably the previous owner of the book (his signature appears on pp. 1 and 136). A note in pencil at the beginning reads 'The Gift of Miss Roberts Lawnt Dolgelley to R. I. Jones, 1847' [i.e. Robert Isaac Jones ('Alltud Eifion')].

Ardal cynnwys a strwythur

Natur a chynnwys

An interleaved copy of John Elliot, M.D., The Medical Pocket-Book, The second edition, with additions and corrections (London: printed for J. Johnson, 1784) containing manuscript entries, 1800, by G[riffith] Roberts, junior, surgeon, son of Dr. Griffith Roberts, Dolgelley. It appears that Griffith Roberts was aboard the frigate H.M.S. 'Syren' when it arrived at Spithead with a convoy from the Leeward Islands, 12 January 1800, and the entries relate mainly to his illness in the first quarter of that year. There are brief references to writing to, and hearing from, his father, his brother W[illia]m, and his uncle, W[illia]m Roberts, Oakland [near Llanrwst], and there are copies of three letters written by him from the Royal Hospital, Haslar [Gosport], one addressed to T[homas] Le M[archan]t Gosselin, who was in command of the 'Syren'. Other individuals mentioned are W[illia]m Smith, late surgeon of the 'Syren', Mr. Lara, appointed surgeon to the 'Syren', and Dr. Lind. A note in pencil at the beginning reads 'The Gift of Miss Roberts Lawnt Dolgelley to R. I. Jones, 1847' [i.e. Robert Isaac Jones ('Alltud Eifion')], and another note, also in pencil, facing p. 100, gives the year of birth of H[enry] I[saac] Jones (1844).
