1929 

Working in the vault sometimes turns into feeling like I’m piecing together the Dead Sea Scrolls.  No, this is neither as complex nor as important as the Dead Sea Scrolls - but I did have to pick up the various sized pieces after they happily dispersed as I pulled them from the shelves.  Then, I had to lay them all out as they had been originally before encapsulating them in mylar so the whole “we’re free!” thing doesn’t happen again and no more damage comes to this paper.
