Notes, topics or text 

BR sends Jones a manuscript to be typed. The author has asked for BR's opinion but he cannot read it. Jones had contacted BR earlier asking for a typing job and noted that she was good at deciphering bad handwriting.

The letter was for sale on abebooks.com by Gerard A.J. Stodolski, Inc. Autographs, and was still for sale there on 15 March 2012.

Full text. The sale transcription is:


Dear Madam, a little while ago you wrote to me and said that you would be glad of typing and that you were good at deciphering bad handwriting. It occurs to me that you may be able to do something with the enclosed m.s. It has been sent to me by the author, who has asked my opinion of it. But as I cannot read it I have asked her permission to send it to you to be typed first. The author wishes to remain anonymous and would like you, wherever names of places or people occur, to leave blanks. She wishes to have two copies made. Where you find it quite illegible she would like you to leave blanks.

Yours faithfully,
Bertrand Russell.
