I've attempted to include scans of all the letters, but in some cases this has not been possible. Either the paper was too badly decomposed, or too yellowed, or the writing too faded. It may be that at a later date, those letters can be scanned and included, but for the time being, I thought it best to leave them alone, lest they be damaged even further.
Some of the letters have incorrect dates or are completely undated. From the context and the partial or full postmarks on the envelopes, I was often able to narrow down the time-frame and figure out the date. To do so, I used a day of the week calculator.
