The three volumes of the 'Clinton Memoirs' can be found at Ne 5 G 7/1-3; There is evidence in Ne 5 G 5/1-10 [in a written preface to 'Clinton Records Vol. I'], which suggests that the contents of the 'Clinton Records' [Ne 5 G 1/1-3/26] is connected to that of the 'Clinton Memoirs' [Ne 5 G 7/1-3], and that the former preceded the latter; also note the reference in letter Ne 5 G 12/5, to 'Memoirs of the House of Clinton' [Ne 5 G 7/1-3?], which gives a Mr [T.D.] Fosbroke as author.

The document has no written date; the year given is based on the estimated dates of volumes Ne 5 G 1/1-3/26 and Ne 5 G 7/1-3.
