This transcript from the original in the office 
of the Town Clerk of Warv^ok was made for the RHODE 
ISLA^TD HISTORICAL GOCIETy in the year 1911 hy Louise 
Prosser Bates and typed in 191ii lay Elsie Burgess Dana. 

Matter appearing in red is not a part of the 
original record Tout is introduced as explanatory. 
Numbers in red in the left hand margin refer to a con- 
tinuous page notation added to the original in x'snoil 
for the purijoses of the transcription. 

A portion of each of the first ninety-eight pj^es 
of the original "book is devoted to shorthand notes 
which, api)arently, were made before its dedication to 
public use and, so far as deciphered, have no connec- 
tion with the later purposes of the volume.
