1 A copy of the original typewritten document was scanned into the computer around 1997. This copy was obtained from George O’Hair who obtained it from Coeta Stockwell and it was scanned in by Kelly O’Hair. Some editing of the document had to be done to correct scanner problems in trying to convert the scanned image into a text document. It appears to have been typed in during the early 1980’s. The handwritten notes I saw on this document I entered in with the script looking font, e.g. Like this.
