Gr. 56 (Phill. 1460) Part III (2 ff.)

For the title, see the ms. description.

A single, thin horizontal line runs through the second page with writing, affecting but not obliterating one line of text. This appears to be a fold in the manuscript, rather than a problem with the photograph, but it is difficult to say without autopsy of the former. The third page is disfigured by a few smallish white dots, which however only seriously affect a few letters. Overall, the film is quite clear and legible, esp. considering the smallness of the writing.
