- No, full transcriptions of the letters are NOT required. Just sender, receiver, what about and date you could always
- regarding letter pages being on separate page images: put the details of page numbers:
- 19 August 1900 W Whitaker in Keswick to Miss Johnston [Letter] [Page 1]
- 19 August 1900 W Whitaker in Keswick to Miss Johnston [Letter] [Page 4]
- 19 August 1900 W Whitaker in Keswick to Miss Johnston [Letter] [Page 2-3]
- as to the occurrence of the photo - something like: W Whitaker [Photograph] [As page 7]
- No real hard and fast rules - just what is logical ...
- I think we can say its Whitaker rather than Whitaker (?)
- If there is anything that ties an item (e.g. letters) to a particular GA field trip - that will be important info as we will be having 'GA field trip Earthwise pages further down the line.

Some signatures are tricky - I have checked the Obit list
Tried Lowe, Loewe
Tried Head, Read, Slead
Chas ? Pratt middle initial. The signature doesn't look much like the Charles Pratt American oilman
