[From the above it will be seen that the earliest dateable entry in this MS. is the Rough Draft of the Économie politique, which cannot have been written later than the first half of 1755 (seeing that the Volume of the Encyclopédie, in which it was published, appeared in November of that year) and which may go back to the latter part of 1754. The Fragment of the Lettre à Philopolis must have been written in October or November, 1755 (see above, pp. 221, 227). The entry concerning the writings of Saint-Pierre was probably made in 1754 or 1755 (see above, p. 360). The earliest dated washing-bill is that of Oct. 1757. The latest entry is probably either the Rough Draft of Lettres de la Montagne (1764; see Vol. II. p. 173); or, more probably, the list of addresses (p. 59 v°), which includes that of Boswell, hardly to be dated earlier than December, 1764 (see Vol. II. p. 293).]
