Transcription Notes:
---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-06-07 18:29:03 Reopening. This needs to be transcribed as a table. Please read TC instructions for proper table transcription of Freedmens Bureau papers. 3 or 5 columned? Although headings make it appear to be a 5 columned table, the content on the left page does not seem to match content on the right, making me think this is a 3 columned table on the left and a 2 columned table on the right. Thoughts? I agree.
