I happened to come across it the other day in a modern printed edition
of 17th- to 19th century handwritten English letters (Miller, Kerby
A., Arnold Schrier, Bruce D. Boling, & David N. Doyle. 2002. _Irish
immigrants in the land of Canaan: letters and memoirs from colonial
and revolutionary America, 1675-1815._ Oxford: Oxford UP) I haven't
got it here just now, but if it is important I might be able to
provide a few scans.
If I remember correctly, it was being used just as an handwritten
ligature of the word "per", as in "per day", "per year", etc.
