The copying continues
Here we see Emmett Eldred, Keith's son, wielding the Biconderoga at Keith's kitchen table, the new site for copying. The pencil endures! As of our last report, we had copied through page 132 or our edition. Now we've copied through page 205.
We've also started a careful count of the words in the book. Through 23 pages of our edition, the word count is 6600, or about 287 per page. If that rate holds steady, we've already written out nearly 59,000 words--well beyond the 45,000 stated in Discovery magazine!
