2 Boxes.

Notes/list of contents. These are working notes which may be of use, but do not claim to be a formal list or index.

Note that these notes are not numbered, as the individual rolls themselves are not numbered. The order is that in which the rolls were taken out of the box (Nov/Dec 2016), and were returned in the same order. There may be more than one packet/document related to the same cause, but unfortunately they are sometimes scattered throughout the box.
