      Dear Wieland,

      The new images of W produced by the Freer Gallery are
      excellent. I was
      present for the first portion of the imaging in the spring
      of 2006.
      When the images were released a couple of months later, I
      was pleased to
      see that the results were so good. Having just been granted
      privilege of examining W for the sake of checking problem
      portions our
      transcription against the original, what I had seen was
      still fresh in
      my mind and the new images impressed me as being very much
      like looking
      at the original in person. The images are available for
      directly from the Freer Gallery.

      The publication of the Prior and Brown transcription has
      been delayed
      due to two factors. The first is that I was called onto the
      Sinaiticus Project as a contracted transcriber before our
      Freer Gospels
      transcription was able to go to press. The Codex Sinaiticus
      Project has
      taken me to England and is a full-time endeavor, and has
      made it
      difficult for me to give the Freer Gospels publication the
      attention it
      deserves. The second factor is the set of new images I have
      discussed. These new images are such an improvement over
      what Bruce and
      I had to work with before, we agreed that it was a good
      thing to
      postpone our publication long enough to proofread it
      thoroughly against
      them. The Codex Sinaiticus Project contract concludes at
      the end of
      July this year. Bruce and I will again turn our attention
      to the
      publication of our transcription of the Freer Gospels upon
      my return to
      America at the end of July.
