dc.provenanceThe various letters and documents were all printed from the CD, and the transcription was performed from the printed copies. In most cases all of the documents appear to have been faithfully scanned, with no loss of information. In a very few cases, the scanned bed is at the limit of the document, and slightly beyond, and a letter or word or two may have been missed. In any event, any items which are illegible are so noted with blanks, e.g. [----], or of questionable context by [?].en_US
