Text of A 2908 / vol. 1 and vol. 2 is nearly alike. The order of letters dated 1 Sept 1795 and 29 Jan 1807 is reversed in vol. 1 (29 Jan 1807 appearing first). In vol. 1, the letter dated 1 Sept 1795 includes some additional remarks about Governor Bligh and about William and James Macarthur at the end of the letter. A letter from John Macarthur to Walter Davidson, 3 Sept 1818 is copied in vol. 2 but not in vol. 1.
Some letters are published in The journal & letters of Elizabeth Macarthur 1789-1798 / introduced and transcribed by Joy N. Hughes (Glebe, N.S.W. : Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales, 1984), which includes "all the known writings of Elizabeth Macarthur for the period 1789-1798" (Introduction, p. 5).
