This however he is to keep secret.

Footnotes

1 The foregoing notice, and the following details of the Flanders galleys down to the close of 1440, are derived solely from indexes. The seven volumes to which they relate seem to have disappeared in 1797. From the mode of compilation of these indexes, the precise date of the entries can only be conjectured by calculating or guessing the number of pages required for the events of each year.
2 The document is indorsed — “Testificacio domini Marchi Taradi in Sandvihio,” and bears the notarial mark of R. Lockying. It is the earliest document written in England discovered by me in the Venetian Archives.
