  •  Notes 
    • We are beholden to Mr. Dero A. Darwin Jr. for a transcription of this record. From Mr. Darwin's accompanying note:

      This is a copy of a photostatic copy of this bible, certified by Patricia Hannigan, Registrar of Deeds, Pratt County, Kansas, October 17, 1958. The title page and date of publication of the Bible are not included.

      The pages of the Bible measure 3" by 5", and there are 18 pages, one of which is illegible. The handwriting is very old, and entries have been made in several different hands. The earliest date entered is 1744. Two of the entries were dated by the person who wrote them as of 1870.

      A copy is also in the Tennessee State Archives, Nashville, Tennessee.

      The copy we have, from the Tennessee State Archives (MS. AC 67-85), is incomplete and very difficult to read; we are grateful for Mr. Darwin's transcription, given above. We do note, however, that similar to the Darwin-Bland "Bible" Record there is no indication that these pages are in fact from a published Bible. Indeed, the heading legend on the pages of "Memorandum" (in fact, it appears to be the novel word Memorandums) suggests this is in fact a notebook.
