1) Original spelling maintained in transcription.
2) The author appears to be using a superscript abbreviation for "ship": sp. Thus, "Township" (line 13) is Town[sp]. Specific ship names are indicated as such with this abbreviation; as in line 29: Abner Small[sp]

I have made some corrections and filled in some missing words, having checked against the relevant pages.

I think the abbreviation in the line about small pox on page 31 refers to its continuation on page 34.
