That's also mentioned on the mailing list web
site. The comparison made is between the copyflo
(which is the same as the MS) and a listing made
by Newbold some time before 1922. It is possible
that Newbold was mistaken, but Jim Gillogly believes
that Newbold was accurate.
There is no information on precisely which pages
are affected and what may have happened to them.
