Included here are acts on linen manufacturing and importing, shipwrecks, Dublin street cleaning, "strengthening the Protestant Interest" in Galway, reducing interest to seven percent, regulating the price of bread, etc. The text is printed largely in roman, with headers and sectional titles in black-letter; the second section, from the first session of George II, has a separate title-page, and both sections offer indexes.
