Misc. Notes:

The uploaded PDF contains the six pages of the linked-to scan and the more readable last page of the other scan the LoC has of this work, as an alternate, since the last page of the linked-to scan is probably not sight-readable at all while the other may merely pose some difficulty. (Just remember to skip the sixth page if this is decided on.)
