Transcription Notes:
Please transcribe this as a 5 columned table. ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-06-07 17:16:41 Reopening for transcription-this is not proper table format. Please follow TC instructions on how to properly transcribe tables for Freedmen's Bureau papers. ---------- It doesn't seem to me like these are 5 column tables in this book, but rather a 3 column table on the left page and a 2 column table on the right page. As you move through the book, the information on the right pages does not correspond to the information on the left pages in content or number of rows. I think the agent is using the left page to record "Letters Received" or "Letter Book" and the right page is his "Endorsement Book" and he will use notations like "L.B. P.1" (i.e. page 1 of Letter Book) or "E.B. P. 26" (i.e. page 26 of Endorsement Book) to tie the letters to the endorsements. agreed - cannot be 5 column table ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-06-08 11:11:53 Agree that is a 3 column on left page and 2 on right
