SG.1.150: The letter <S> is formed from a series of linked dots. This and similar marks enable the reader to find sections
referred to in the table of contents. See f.101v. As Benson and Blanchfield point out (Manuscripts, 132), the mark is referred to in this table, so it has clearly been added as part of the original preparation of the manuscript.
The form of the letter, however, suggests the possibility that such marks were the work of WH rather than the original scribe;
see the form of the capitals used by WH on ff.69v, 72v and 103r, and see further Jefferson, "Divisions," esp. 148-50.
