Not to speak of:

Che (mothhole) cattle if necessary (stained leather blotch) inj (rest missing)

I get the impression that's the state of many of the older records at the beginning of the ninth pass.

I can sympathise. I was recently given two ancestral diaries that have been under a house in Auckland for sixty years or more. While the top one is legible, in hard-to-read handwriting it degenerates into faded ink on foxed paper, and then faded ink on foxed, mouldy paper.

And did Anne ever discover that the mould on records is dangerous? It can cause eye infections and lung diseases.
