DescriptionOn f. 2v is a list of "Intended Subjects for Fordham Lecture" which includes lectures by Robert Fleming, Mr. Scandrett [likely Stephen Scandrett], Mr. Bury [perhaps Arthur Bury?], and Mr. Wright. These preachers' initials and the texts on which they preached are placed beside the list of intended subjects. On ff. 71v-72v, Fleming has written as list describing how "The Heads Intended to have been discoursed of (as above,) were Handled (as things fell out) as follows." This list includes the subjects and preachers, but not the texts used. This list of 28 lectures is followed by headings for each of the preachers: Mr. Fleming, Mr. Scandrot, Mr. Bury, and Mr. Wright, showing that they preached on 10, 8, 7, and 3 subjects respectively. We are also told that the manuscript was "Begun in the close of year 1690 and ended towards the end of the year 1691."

Other NoteThe lists, and presumably the lectures, were composed in 1690 and 1691 according to Fleming, but the first one is headed with the date 1703, which appears to be the year that the sermons were preached.
