Transcription Notes:
added all the underlining notations; changed the table section to reflect line by line entry for clarity Added writing in margins I had redone the table portion line by line for better clarity as to how it should line up, but this has been removed by another editor. I assume Smithsonian staff will refer to the original document to see how the table should look.
