There follows a transcription of the Xerox copy of the "Hopkins Family MG 25 G57" file copied July 15 1996 and sent to me from the National Archives of Canada which I received July 27 1996.
The first sheet in the file is as follows:
HOPKINS-INGLEHART FAMILY, 1745-1952. 21 pages.
Xerox and photostat copies of some birth, marriage and death records of the Hopkins and Inglehart families of Ontario for the period 1745-1952. made in 1969 from originals lent for copying by Mrs. Pamela Hopkins of Ottawa."
There appears to be 6 separate records here.
The first record of 4 pages I label "The Ingelhart Bible".
The second record of 4 pages I label "Abner Griffis Hopkins Record".
The third record of 4 pages I label "Ephraim Hopkins Record".
The fourth record of 4 pages I label "Everitt Bible."
The fifth record of 4 pages I label "Ephraim Hopkins Bible".
The sixth record of 6 pages I label "The Unknown Bible".
The last two records are double copies so the page total does indeed equal 21 as suggested in the archival sheet.
