Response to: Finding aid added: Musee de la Cooperation Franco-Americaine
I tried to post through the web form but I was blocked because it didn't like my password. I was sure I had the right password, so I'll have to get some help on that next week. Anyway, thanks for creating this repository finding guide and linking the mss to it.
I have several things to note. On the name of the museum, mentioned a half dozen times--once on the index and then multiple times on the entry itself--we have several accent marks missing. Can someone please add those. I'll place the proper accented spelling here, though I'm a little worried they may disappear as this message travels through email:
Musée national de la coopération franco-américaine
We want an accent aigu on the first
e in musée, coopération, and américaine
Also a picky thing: there is more white space showing after "Biographical information" than there is following "Abstract" and "Scope and content."
Finally, I gather that we have rectos only of this ms rather than versos. Did we somehow forget to request versos, or did they fail to provide them? Bah. I guess I'll have to get back into correspondence with these people.
Thanks again. Ken
