Comments

I noticed that these two charts are identical...one is supposed to be for the fronts and the other for the sleeve. Are they supposed to be identical?? I appreciate all you're doing to bring these wonderful timeless classics back into the light...there are those of us who've been handed down these books that were so well used that they are no longer legible... now we can update them and print out those pages that we can't read or have been torn out by mischievious children.... Yours truly, Arla Schmaltz
Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I've fixed the link to chart 962. :)
