Its one Chapter, so it cant be very difficult. Here are some notes and a copy or two I found. I don'y know how complete these are . But I think what I have here represents the full chapter. And I included notes
 

The Lost Chapter of Acts of the Apostles
[ Copy of the Sonnini Manuscripts ] Acts Chapter 29 :  ( My 1st Copy ) 1And Paul, full of the blessings of Christ, and abounding in the
spirit, departed out of Rome, determining to go into Spain, for he had
a long time proposed to journey thitherward, and was minded also to
go from thence to Britain. For he had heard in Phoenicia that
certain of the children of Israel, about the time of the Assyrian
captivity, had escaped by sea to “the Isles afar off” as spoken by the
Prophet, and called by the Romans Britain. And the Lord commanded the gospel to be preached far hence to the Gentiles, and
to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. 29:4 And no man hindered
Paul: for he testified boldly of Jesus before the tribunes and among
the people; and he took with him certain of the brethren which abode
with him at Rome, and they took shipping at Ostrium and having the winds fair, were brought safely into a haven of Spain. And much people were gathered together from the towns and villages, and the
hill country; for they had heard of the conversion of the Apostles, and
the many miracles which he had wrought. And Paul preached mightily in Spain, and great multitudes believed and were converted,
for they perceived he was an apostle sent from God. And they departed out of Spain, and Paul and his company finding a ship in
Armorica sailing unto Britain, they were therein, and passing along
the South Coast, they reached a port called Raphinus. Now when it was voiced abroad that the Apostle had landed on their coast,
great multitudes of the inhabitants met him, and they treated Paul
courteously and he entered in at the east gate of their city, and
lodged in the house of an Hebrew and one of his own nation. And on the morrow he came and stood upon Mount Lud and the
people thronged at the gate, and assembled in the Broadway, and he
preached Christ unto them, and they believed the Word and
testimony of Jesus. And at even the Holy Spirit fell upon Paul,
and he prophesied,saying, Behold, in the last days the God of Peace
shall dwell in the cities, and the inhabitants thereof shall be
numbered: and in the seventh numbering of the people, their eyes shall be opened, and the glory of their inheritance shine forth before
them. The nations shall come up to worship on the mount that
testifieth of the patience and long suffering of a servant of the Lord. And in the latter-days new tidings of the Gospel shall issue
forth out of Jerusalem, and the hearts of the people shall rejoice, and
behold, fountains shall be opened, and there shall be no more
plague. In those days there shall be wars and rumours of war;
and a King shall rise up, and his sword, shall be for the healing of the
nations, and His peace making shall abide, and the glory of His
Kingdom a wonder among princes. And it came to pass that
certain of the Druids came unto Paul privately, and showed by their
rites and ceremonies that they were descended from the Judahites
which escaped from bondage in the land of Egypt, and the Apostle
believed these things, and he gave them the kiss of peace. And Paul abode in his lodgings three months confirming in the faith and
preaching Christ continually. And after these things, Paul and his brethren departed from Raphinius and sailed unto Atium in Gaul. And Paul preached in the Roman garrison and among the
people, exhorting all men to repent and confess their sins. 29:17 And
there came to him certain of the Belgaeto enquire of him of the new doctrine, and of the man Jesus; and Paul opened his heart unto them
and told them all things that had befallen him, howbeit that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners; and they departed
pondering among themselves the things which they had heard. And after much preaching and toil, Paul and his fellow labourers
passed into Helvetia, and came to Mount Pontius Pilate, where he
who condemned the Lord Jesus dashed himself down headlong, and
so miserably perished. And immediately a torrent gushed out of
the mountain and washed his body, broken in pieces,into a lake. And Paul stretched forth his hands upon the water, and prayed
unto the Lord saying, O Lord God, give a sign unto all nations that
here Pontius Pilate which condemned thine only-begotten Son,
plunged down headlong into the pit. And while Paul was yet
speaking, behold, there came a great earthquake, and the face of the
waters was changed, and the form of the lake like unto the Son of
Man hanging in an agony upon the Cross. And a voice came
out of Heaven saying, Even Pilate hath escaped the wrath to come
for he washed his hands before the multitude at the blood shedding
of the Lord Jesus. When, therefore, Paul and those that were
with him saw the earthquake, and heard the voice of the angel, they glorified God, and were mightily strengthened in the spirit. And they journeyed and came to Mount Julius where stood two pillars,
one on the right hand and one on the left hand, erected by Caesar
Augustus. And Paul, filled with the Holy Ghost, stood up
between the two pillars, saying, Men and brethren these stones which
ye see this day shall testify of my journey hence; and verily I say, they
shall remain until the outpouring of the spirit upon all nations, neither
shall the way be hindered throughout all generations. And they
went forth and came unto Illtricum, intending to go by Macedonia into
Asia, and grace was found in all the churches, and they prospered
and had peace. Amen. Explanation The 29 chapter of the Acts of the Apostle is known as the
Sonnini Manuscript.
The Sonni Manuscript contains the account of Paul’s
journey to Spain and Britain. The document, purported to
be the concluding portion of the “Acts of the Apostles”
covers a portion of the period after Paul”s two year enforced
house arrest and living in his own rented house. It is written
in the syle of the Bible Acts and reads like a continuation.
The Manuscript was found interleaved in a copy of
Sonnini’s “Travels in Turkey and Greece” and was 3
purchased at the sale of the library and effects of the late
Right Honorable Sir John Newport, Bart, of Ireland. Sir
John’s family arms were engraved on the cover of the book.
It had been in his possession for over thirty years. With the
book was a document from the Sultan of Turkey, granting to
C. S. Sonnini permission to travel to all parts of the Ottoman
dominions. The document was translated by C. S. Sonnini
from an original Greek manuscript found in the Archives at
Constantinople, and presented to him by the Sultan Abdoul
Acment.
The following is the contents of the title page of Sonnini’s
work, In which the English translation of the document was
found:
“Travels in Turkey and Greece undertaken by order of
Louis XVI, and with the authority of the Ottoman Court by C.
S. Sonnini, member of several scientific or literary societies.
‘Mores mulorum videt et ubes.’ –HOR., London; Printed for
T. N. Londman and O. Rees, Paternoster Row. 1801.” 4 Points in favor of the authenicity of the manuscript are as
follows:
1. It is being preserved in the Archives of
Constantinople.
2. It has all the apperances of being of an ancient
date.
3. It was written in Greek, and in the manner of the
book of Acts.
4. The places and people mentioned are called by
their ancient Roman names.
5. Its Scriptural brevity and conception of the Divine
purpose and plan.
6. Its Gospel-like character is dignified and spiritual.
7. Its prophetic expressions are in a Biblical style.
8. Its ending in the word “Amen.”
5
The Biblical Acts of the Apostles is one of two New
Testament books not ending in ‘amen.’ This has led some
Bible scholars to believe they are
incomplete in their present form.
The 29 chapter of Acts was included for sake of clarity
and not intented to be conclude as part of the authorized
biblical text. Nor has any text been located in the Greek
writings to being included. It is included for the readers
consideration because of all the prophetic preditions and
their fullment and those yet to be fulfilled.

ACTS 29: ( 2nd copy with  with some Notes ) 1- And Paul, full of the blessings of Christ, and abounding
in the spirit, departed out of Rome, determining to go into
Spain, for he had a long time proposed to journey thitherward,
and was minded also to go from thence to Britain. 2- For he had heard in Phoenicia that certain of the children
of Israel, about the time of the Assyrian captivity, had
escaped by sea to “The Isles afar off” as spoken by the
Prophet [ Esdra ], and called by the Romans – Britain. 3- And the Lord commanded the gospel to be preached far
hence to the Gentiles [nations], and to the lost sheep of
the House of Israel. [Act 9:15, 22:21] 4- And no man hindered Paul; for he testified boldly of
Jesus before the tribunes and among the people; and he took
with him cetain of the brethren which abode with him at Rome,
and they took shipping at Ostrium and having the winds fair,
were brought safely into a haven of Spain. 5- And much people were gathered together from the towns and
villages, and the hill country; for they had heard of the
conversion to the Apostles, and the many miracles which he
had wrought. 6- And Paul preached mightily in Spain, and great multitudes
believed and were converted, for they perceived he was an
apostle sent from God. 7- And they departed out of Spain, and Paul and his company
finding a ship in Armorica sailing unto Britain, they were
therein, and passing along the south Coast, they reached a
port called Raphinus. (This is the Roman name for Sandwich,
in Kent. In Saxon times there was, still standing in Sandwich,
and old house called the “House of the Apostles: and tradition
has it that Paul was one of the Apostles). 8- Now when it was voiced abroad that the Apostle had landed
on thier coast, great multitudes of the inhabitants met him,
and they treated Paul courteously and he entered in at the east
gate of their city, and lodged in the house of an Hebrew and one
of his own nation. 9- And on the morrow he came and stood upon Mount Lud
(Ludgate Hill and Broadway where St. Paul’s Cathedral stands
in London, England) and the people thronged at the gate, and
assembled in the Broadway, and he preached Christ unto them,
and they believed the Word and the testimony of Jesus. 10- And at even the Holy Ghost fell upon Paul, and he
prophesied, saying, Behold in the last days the God of
Peace shall dwell in the cities, and the inhabitants thereof
shall be numbered: and in the seventh numbering of the people,
their eyes shall be opened, and the glory of their inheritance
shine forth before them. The nations shall come up to worship
on the mount the testifieth of the patience and long suffering
of a servant of the Lord. 11- And in the latter days new tidings of the Gospel shall
issue forth out of Jerusalem, and the hearts of the people
shall rejoice, and behold, fountains shall be opened, and
there shall be no more plague. 12- In those days there shall be wars and rumours of war;
and a king shall rise up, and his sword, shall be for the
healing of the nations, and his peacemaking shall abide, and
the glory of his kingdom a wonder among princes. 13- And it came to pass that certain of the Druids came unto
Paul privately, and showed by their rites and ceremonies they
were descended from the Jews [Judahites] which escaped from
bondage in the land of Egypt, and the apostle believed these
things, and he gave them the kiss of peace. 14- And Paul abode in his lodgings three months confirming
in the faith and preaching Christ continually. 15- And after these things Paul and his brethren departed from
Raphinus and sailed unto Atium in Gaul. 16- And Paul preached in the Roman garrison and among the
people, exhorting all men to repent and confess their sins. 17- And there came to him certain of the Belgae to enquire
of him of the new doctrine, and of the man Jesus; And Paul
opened his heart unto them and told them all things that had
befallen him, howbeit, that Christ Jesus came into the world
to save sinners; and they departed pondering among themselves
upon the things which they had heard. 18- And after much preaching and toil, Paul and his fellow
labourers passed into Helvetia, and came to Mount Pontius
Pilate, where he who condemned the Lord Jesus dashed himself
down headlong, and so miserably perished. 19- Immediately a torrent gushed out of the mountain and
washed his body, broken in pieces, into a lake. 20- And Paul stretched forth his hands upon the water, and
prayed unto the Lord, saying O Lord God, give a sign unto
all nations that here Pontius Pilate which condemned thine
only-begotten son, plunged down headlong into the pit. 21- And while Paul was yet speaking, behold, there came a
great earthquake, and the face of the waters was changed,
and the form of the lake like unto the Son of Man hanging
in an agony upon the Cross. 22- And a voice came out of heaven saying, Even Pilate
hath escaped the wrath to come [Second Death - Rev 21:8]
for he washed his hands before the multitude at the
blood-shedding of the Lord Jesus [Mathew 27:24] 23- When, therefore, Paul and those that were with him saw
the earthquake, and heard the voice of the angel, they
glorified God, they were mightily strengthened in the spirit. 24- And they journeyed and came to Mount Julius where stood
two pillars, one on the right hand and one on the left hand,
erected by Caesar Augustus. 25- And paul, filled with the Holy Spirit , stood up between
the two pillars, saying, Men and brethren these stones which
ye see this day shall testify of my journey hence; and verily
I say, they shall remain until the outpouring of the spirit
upon all nations, neither shall the way be hindered throughout
