The last pages (paste down included) contains an explanation with double page plans of the reshaping of the castle's grounds, with ponds and a bridge over the Senne ( Zenne ) river. Interesting manuscript on the management of an estate in mid 19th c. Brabant (Belgium). The whole village of Haren was incorporated in the town of Brussels at the beginning of the 20th c.. The manuscript was kept in a rather careless manner and many pages have been removed. It remains nevertheless an interesting source for the history of Haren and its castle. .
