On final leaf is postscript by the author: I desire you to take notice, that I beeing surprised in time for the sorting of my papers, and using several printers for the expedition, som of my papers have been misplaced and twice printed, through neglect of those I intrusted in this business, which I hope will bee no trouble to the judicious that read's them.
