Page 173, line 21. "Goldsmith " should be " Goldsborough."

Page 194, line 21. "Inne" should be "since."

Page 197, line 15. " 1691 " should be " 1694."

Page 197, line 20. "Caroline County" must be an error of the

Page 201, line 21. "alkimy spoons." The name "alchymy" was
formerly given to various alloys resembling gold or silver.

Page 227, line 11. " Presidential!," i. e. " precedential"—taking pre-
cedence of other business.

Page 364, line 42. "processioning." This custom, for preserving
the memory of ancient boundaries, is still retained in some parts of

Page 415, line 25. The copyist of L. H. J., on which we have had to
rely to fill up gaps made by damp and insects in the original, is not to
be trusted implicitly. In several cases he has supplied words conjec-

p. 395), which reads: " We have with our utmost care and scrutiny con-

names of members he is often wrong: thus on p. 403 " Edward Hill"
should be " Richard Hill," and " Col. John Hutchins " is a mistake.

Page 425, line 46. " Supplementory" should be "supplicatory."
See p. 78,1. 43.

Page 442, line 20. "winter" should be "water." See p. 485,1. 16.

Page 569, line 11. " Toting." This early occurrence of this word is
perhaps worth noting.
