Other articles within include: "A Brief Description of Ireland" (lacking the map called for); "Cause of the Irish Discontents" "On The Origin of Religion" "The History of Scotland from the Establishment of the Reformation till the Death of Queen Mary..." and more. Near the back is the "Monthly Chronicle" with various news reports of the day.
