Comment

In pencil on lower margin, "No. 3012"

Jacobus Heinie worked as a scrivener and also concocted various medicinal treatments to sell. His handwriting can be difficult to read, and he is noted for spelling very phonetically. He often signed or initialed his works. This example is signed “J Heinie” at the bottom, after the note “No. 3012,” perhaps in reference to an order number.

Good
