[Craig, NATM, 20, takes these to be Newton's own accounts and the date 1690 to be a slip for 1696, but the document reads unequivocally '6th of ffebr 1689 to the 6th ffebr 1690'. The suggestion that the accounts are Overton's is taken from Westfall, 570, n.65.]

Printed in NC, 4: 217 (which follows Craig's misdating of 1696).
