It’s hard for us to tell - which means it’s a perfect #MondayMindmelter candidate - but was someone ELSE writing in Spencer Baird’s Atlas? 

Right now, at the tail end of our Contribute&Connect challenge, there are only TWO pages that need to be reviewed - if we wrap it up, we’ll go behind-the-scenes at Smithsonian Institution Archives!

Give us your opinion on whether these middle lines were written by a different hand than those at the top and bottom. What do you think? Was someone going rogue in the Index of Correspondence?
