I have uploaded the first 52 pages of new archive Moncrieff material from Colin Mayor is now on site. The text has not yet been completed and will appear shortly, as Mary works her way through the pages and I get it on site!

Little red book

Any ideas on the question marked items would be greatly appreciated.

Just a suggestion -
Page 4 and 5 of Little Red Book

Bt 6ent could actually be Bt 6cwt and stand for bought 6 hundredweight.

Further down same pages - 100 ts  150lb - could ts be short for times since 100 times the 1 1/2 lb equals 150 lb.

Regards
John

Bt could be short for 'bought'?

"... Two fulls ?? the Large Glass" the ?? should be 'of' I think.
