I wonder why they had the period at the end of "Telegram." - Interesting how grammar/spelling standards change through the years.

@ James Floyd Kelly

It is a bit odd, isn't it? I'd speculate that "Telegram" was the last word of a sentence that was chopped off, but the source file was a direct scan.

No, we're odd like that. I can actually find a use for this thanks.

BTW here is a handy link for images which lend themselves maybe to making prop documents.
