MS (DLC: TJ Papers, 139:24006); in an unidentified hand.

Erving likely acquired for the Library of Congress the second edition of the swedish and English dictionary published in Sweden in 1757 (Jacob Serenius, An English and Swedish Dictionary: Wherein the Generality of Words and Various Significations Are Rendered into Swedish and Latin [Harg and Stenbro, Sweden, 1757]).
