Hi Veena, thanks for flagging, I think I might need to check the original and possibly get new images of a few pages- is looks as though there is something running up the left hand margin as well yet the image before doesn't seem to reflect that. Thank you all for your work on the recipe books! I am in the very slow process of reviewing and adding to the Wellcome catalogue, and you have helped with so much. I'll be in touch with the transcribers once I've got something more to show the group, Katy at Wellcome


I am still learning, but it truly is one of my favorite hobbies. I look forward to the updates as they come in!
