Bound in full contemporary sheep, with both hasps, but only one brass clasp present.
A manuscript notebook kept by William Young containing a collection of remedies for ailments in horses and cattle, circa 1826. There are numerous receipts for coughs, bleeding, purging, colic, to dry a cow of her milk, to make a cow go a bulling, the glanders, &c. Some are “taken from the twenty-first edition of Francis Clater,” while others appear original, “from a friend,” or are unacknowledged. Also included are receipts for ink, and some printed notes (pasted in) relating to the owner's position as an Officer of the Excise: e.g., tables of stamp and legacy duties, and a hand-written form letter for a notice to quit. A note taken from The Whitehaven Herald, might indicate a location.
