On f. 1r is written "Ben Coles 1712 His Booke Aetat. Suae 17. Annoq; Annae Reginae X." This appears to refer to the younger Cole. On f. 2r is written "Ben: Coles 1698.

Material FeaturesThe boards have become detached. Otherwise the manuscript is in good condition. The notes are written margins ruled on the lefthand side in two hands, presumably those of Coles, father and son.

Other NoteChoice Sentences of the late Reverend Mr. Thomas Cole are not included in this database. Although they are likely taken from sermons, they are brief and decontextualized in the manner of a commonplace book.
