The unidentified hand is looser and less formal, but largely clear and legible.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets are folded into a booklet that was, at one time, bound with thread or twine. Paper is heavily worn, with significant loss of text.][note (type: ink): Brown ink is heavily faded in spots.][note (type: noteworthy): Beginning on seven recto, the document is written in a different, unidentified hand.
