It was a pretty incredible - and intense - couple of hours. I was reading the handwriting of my great-grandmother from over one hundred years ago...and wondering about the mix of emotions represented on those pages.

The writing on most of those four pages was buried under undated news clippings that Maxie had carefully glued - along the top edge of the clipping - to the page itself.

I used my exacto knife to try and get down to presentable pages.

And scanned and photographed the news clippings while they were still glued to the page, since I knew many of them wouldn't survive that treatment...
