Other Notes:
Welbe seeks support for a proposed excursion to 'Terra Australis Incognita', which he thinks would be of great advantage to Britain. He is in prison due to his owing 'the summ of six pound (which debt was ocationed by my long attendance at the Court'. He includes a recipe for an 'antivenerial water'.
