Included Text

Dear Top. If you have to reduce it do it in pencil and then I'll draw it again. It strikes now it's done there's no space left for lead lines is there? Don't spoil this one as I'll make some use of it, if you find it too big. I'm waiting for the reduction to do the others, as then I'll get them exact. Note signs I've added a little bit at bottom to get Christ in.
Note: Written by DGR at the top of the paper. Also, the haloes are inscribed as in the finished version.
