Chancery case
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 03:45 BST (UK) »
This snip falls in the middle of this phrase. What is the word after "should be  &..."?  I thought perhaps it meant "Etc" but it makes no sense (to me)  in the context.

It might be:  ...should be & go to your...

Can you post some other examples of g for comparison?

The second is difficult without more context.

It looks like mres, in the same way that lres is a standard contraction of letteres, but I can't think what that might be.

Thanks for posting the extra text.  Nothing further has come to mind I'm afraid.

I presume the word Discovery here is used in the legal sense.  So the answer is likely to be in the Bill.  Have you read it?

Thank you for looking and thinking H.D.

I am ploughing through the first of four A3plus size pages plus another 8 smaller pieces. Thank goodness it is reasonably legible.

Hmm, that would certainly make sense in the context, but here is an 'I'
