Notes
Three yellowing pages, two are double-sided and the third is half a page. Each page is numbered with a Roman numeral on TR corner. Writing is concise, but becomes increasingly looser, with more errors. Signed by "Spirou" at 17 years old. This could be a pseudonym of Gustav's during his second year as an intern.
