Notebook missing most of its pages, but containing still an index of documents (one bearing a date in 1822), many of which appear elsewhere in the Walker papers, having been cut out from this book and removed (A. Brugman's election oration from Groningen, 8.10.1785, for example). There are also inserted 2 copies of Catholic pastoral letters on the deaths of Lewis Anthony of France, Count de Marne, and John Menzies of Pitfodels, these being dated 1844 and 1843.
