This transcription is made to the best of my ability, trying to decipher the handwriting and misspellings. No attempt has been made to correct spelling or punctuation (actually, the "lack" of punctuation), and there are several places where I simply cannot determine what a word is supposed to be. Any errors are strictly unintentional on my part. If you find any, please email me so I can make the correction!
