.25 Linear Feet (1 document case: 6 items (formerly)) : Written in varied informal secretary hands. The bulk of item 2 is in a more formal secretary hand. Paper.
Hofmann-Freeman acquisition, 1969
Item 1 was previously strung on a piece of tawed leather (?), now item 6, as a file: the file-string holes are in the top left corner of each document. It proved impossible to consult the separate documents without tearing them, so the front knot (reef-knot) was untied and retied after removal of the string. The documents remain in the order in which they were strung.
