This booklet is OP and intensely HTF. I situated a transcript at the renowned Tate-LaBianca weblog helmed by way of "Col. Scott." His reproduction was once plagued by many spelling & grammatical blunders, so much of which i'm hoping i've got controlled to right in my transcript. there have been no illustrations incorporated, so I searched on-line and assembled a couple of illustrations myself. during this latter job, I received a few newspaper and journal articles, that are incorporated as an advantage. You'll locate the illustrations and articles appended on the end.
I initially made this as an RTF dossier, which I switched over on-line to PDF. it can no longer be ideal, yet i feel the reader will at the very least locate it acceptable.
I keep in mind that there's a faux PDF in the market on a type of loose booklet websites. so far as i'm acutely aware, this is often the 1st reputable transcript to be made freely to be had, open air of Col. Scott's blog.
