Both Bartlett and Pope are documented, but the Pope's documentation falls short of present-day standards. For example, Pope merely says that the original manuscript diary is in the British Museum. One has to turn to Bartlett to find the diary more specifically cited as part of Egerton Mss. 784. Pope also states that he examined only a copy of the diary made by Mr. James Phinney Baxter of Portland, Maine.
