I also own a copy of the book.

Some pieces of the reproductions of the original letters have obviously been cut out, maybe in order to make the photocopies fit into one single page.

The third letter, the one from Sarolananda, is a good example: The penultimate paragraph of the left (handwritten) page ends like this: "But now a bulwark of strength has come to me"

No full stop here, and in the typed version the sentence isn't finished there either. In the handwriting it abruptly stops at the right edge of the paper.

Moreover the lower part of the loop of the letter "g" of the word "strength" has obviously become victim of the cutting process (whereas the words "of" and "May" in the same and next lines are very close together - no straight cutting possible). The last paragraph is positioned a bit more to the left than the upper ones.

Looks like some guileless patchwork all in all.

Hendrik
