Editorial comments:

c1245. The date of the annotations is uncertain - they might relate to MT's memoirs when she read through past files more often underlining than writing comments. She also used a fountain pen more often in later years, and these underlinings probably were written with such a pen. Copy unannotated by MT in PREM19/1491 f64. Read documents selected from the PREM19 file. The full file from which the unannotated item is taken can be seen here - PREM19-1491.
