Almost surely 2 Thessalonians followed 1 Thessalonians, as it does in all other manuscripts which have both letters. Most scholars are of the opinion that Philemon was also included in this codex. The argument is that there was simply not enough room to include the pastorals and Philemon, which would require about twice as many leaves. Although Kenyon’s view held sway for many decades, and is even now occasionally affirmed, Jeremy Duff’s article in 44 (1998), “P46 and the Pastorals: A Misleading Consensus? One of the points made by Duff is that the letters are more compressed at the end of the codex than in the middle.
He noted that there are half again as many letters per page in the last leaves than in the middle leaves.
(The later, standard quire was eight leaves [or four double leaves], used throughout the early to middle ages.) Second, each page is numbered by the original scribe. Usually the quires are numbered, and frequently the leaves were numbered (on the front page), but not the pages.
Since the first extant page is numbered 17 (folio 8), and starts with Romans 5.17, we can extrapolate that the manuscript began with Romans 1 and is missing the outer seven double leaves.

What is extant are nine ‘Pauline’ letters: Romans, Hebrews (almost always included in the Pauline corpus as far as ancient manuscripts are concerned), 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Ephesians, Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, and 1 Thessalonians.
Missing are 2 Thessalonians, Philemon, and the pastoral letters. Kenyon started the ball rolling with the suggestion that the last five leaves were left blank and did not include the pastorals. If he was, this might suggest that they are not authentic.
