MC:P261/MS3 Papers on the Dispute given by Thomas Loveday
This collection contains three separate accounts of the events of 1687. Dr. Thomas Loveday gave MC:P261/MS3 to the college in 1949, and letters from Dr. Loveday to Dr. Onions relating to his gift are kept with MC:P261/MS3/1-3. In the letters Loveday attributes MC:P261/MS3/1 to Atterbury. However, Loveday was unsure of the history of MC:P261/MS3/2 but believes it comes from Harrington Bagshaw.
