Possum Up a 'Simmon Tree


One leaf typewritten on the front side. The document is in good physical condition. There are two loose leaf binding holes at the upper edge, both of which have been torn. The document was laminated. It appears that a sheet of laminate was reused, as there is the remnants of another document around the edges. There is lamination-related creasing on the document. The upper right corner was folded into the laminate. There is a moderate tear at the upper right edge. There is an illegible mark and a parenthetical "7" handwritten in pencil at the upper edge.
