TABLE I.—Appendix.

In consequence of an incorrect description in the hand list the volume which is designated 'Out Letters Customs' Vol. II was not brought to my notice until too late for the calendaring of its earlier pages. The entries on these earlier pages are accordingly given here as an appendix to Table I of 1670. The volume in question is not an Out Letters Book. It is a Money Warrant Book.
