"A treatise on the numeration of algorism, from a ms. of the 14th century" (p. -26) is included "not that it has any reference to the subject of our memoir, but because it appeared to be a seasonable opportunity for rescuing a curious piece of antiquity from destruction". An appendix (p. [ 27]-31) relates to Pell's manuscripts in Dr. Birch's collection in the British museum.
