The transcriber with this question has left for the day, and it will be Tuesday before we can pull another page to copy. Unfortunately, I'm afraid the quality will not be any better than the first scanned pages.
But, in answer to your question about how they appear with the words - the meaning of the word is spelled out fully and not abbreviated. For instance, ounce is spelled out in a column beside its symbol, much like the document I sent. Both of the pages we previously attempted to provide show the information in such columns, though I think the transcriber said some of the text explains the meaning of the symbols as well.
Hope this helps you help us, but if not, we'll work toward gathering more information for you on Tuesday.
Thanks so much for the time you are taking with this.
