Collectanea et excerpta variis manibus s. XVII. scripta.
Miscellaneous notes and collections of several hands saec. XVII. Fol 79r-81v contain under the heading: Ex antiquisso manuscripto Hib. Incipiunt libri S. Patricii a text of the Confessio as far as 238, 11 qui sumus nos epistola Christi, further a note concerning Palladius (from the Additamenta to Tírechán) and the Dicta Patricii. All this has been copied from D1), with occasional corrections from Ware's edition and others which appear to be the transcriber's own guesses. [Quote from Bieler's Introduction, p. 8.]
Note from Dr. B. C. Barker-Benfield (Senior Assistant Librarian, Bodleian Library): "This manuscript contains the Confessio Patricii at fols. 79r-80v (four pages). The next three pages, foliated 81ar, 81av and 81br are blank. Fol. 81bv contains notes relevant to St Patrick, including a paragraph headed 'Dicta Patricii' ('Timorem dei habui ducem itineris mei ...') ..."
