[note (type: abstract): Occom’s undated sermon, “Woe unto him who gives his neighbor drink,” is accompanied by notes for a sermon in an unidentified hand.][note (type: handwriting): Occom's handwriting is clear and legible. The unidentified hand is looser and less formal, but largely clear and legible.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets are folded into a booklet that was, at one time, bound with thread or twine. Paper is heavily worn, with significant loss of text.][note (type: ink): Brown ink is heavily faded in spots.][note (type: noteworthy): Beginning on seven recto, the document is written in a different, unidentified hand. There is a small pin in the inside seam holding the booklet together. An editor, likely 19th-century, has added notes on several pages in black ink. These notes have not been transcribed.]
