Notes and Questions

I've been transcribing ampersands as '&' but there is a second form that the scribe uses that looks like a 'C'. Do I expand this as 'and'?

Double checked with the team and we're transcribing it as &


Should we expand measurements i.e. 'one ounce' or write '℥i'


I have started to leave lines of Latin as "unclear" as I am not very experienced with it. I will prioritise the English.
