[1774-1776?, ca. 1790s]
Volume is a memoir written by Handley Chipman. Cover states: “A part of the memoir of Handley Chipman Esqr. Cornwallis N.S. Written 5 and 6 years before his death in April 1799. Property of Zachariah Chipman, D[ied] 1854.” This inscription was obviously written by someone who had the book sometime after Chipman’s death on 27 May 1799 and who was mistaken about Chipman’s month of death. Zachariah Chipman was Handley Chipman’s son.
