[Editorial Note 7] The following passage is found at the bottom of the page and written upside down.

[Editorial Note 8] The following passage is an unknown hand, and contains a partial copy of materials present elsewhere in this manuscript. The text has been sparsely edited/annotated by Newton. The unknown scribe has the habit to use multiple words as catchwords, but only repeats the first one on the next page. In order to accomodate for a correct reading the other words have been supplied.
