Thank you, yes I did receive your copies.
I scanned them to try and produce better copies. When scanned from regular paper copies I am not able to be enlarged without losing detail. I will send the scans to my partner to see if we can use the copies in a smaller format. During the last two weeks my partner was in Poland visiting publishers and museums trying to make arrangements for a possible future exhibit so no decision has been made. I will keep you informed if we need to ask you to scan the pages at a 300 plus resolution.
Thank you again,

Could you please let me know if you received photocopies of my zyciorys and entries from my pamietnik which I posted to your P.O.Box on June the 8th.
Would hate to think they ended up in wrong hands.

Subject: [Kresy-Siberia] Re: Autograph Book Project
Sometime ago I wrote to you regarding "moj zyciorys" (a short
account of deportation, etc, written when I was 13 in a Polish
boarding school in England ), plus excerpts of some very patriotic
poems written by friends and professors in my pamietnik. We were
encouraged to keep a diary and autograph books in our school in
Africa where we learned our beautiful handwriting in spite of
shortage of qualified teachers. One example: "Kochaj Ojczyzne ten
kraj caly, ktorego godlem is orzel bialy".
Do let me know if you are interested, and if so where can I send
copies for your perusal.
