RH15/102/6/2/141A, 85. 141A is an account submitted by the Earl of Edzell and assumed to have been drawn up by his factor Major John Wood, in similar fashion to another in his name given the date of 1 November 1675. The second account (folio 85) appears to be the account referred to as the last item of the first account, although the amounts are different.
