Indentation[edit]

The last two lines are (unintentionally, I believe) being rendered as preformatted text and should instead use  s or :s to indent, just like the rest of the article. However, I cannot make these changes as the article is protected. —dto (talkcontribs) 21:35, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Fixed with the <poem> extension. —{admin} Pathoschild 02:09:32, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Proofreading[edit]

I've downgraded the text to 75% after finding and correcting numerous mistakes in the transcription. At least one additional editor should look through it for any I've missed before moving it back up to 100%. —{admin} Pathoschild 02:09:32, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit]

Images should be added to the main textspace, and we should wikilink the NYPD in the Info section. Sherurcij (talk) (λεμα σαβαχθανει) 22:26, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I've linked the NYPD. The images are slightly problematic, though; they overlap the right-aligned date. I'll take a look later; maybe a gallery at the bottom would be ideal. —{admin} Pathoschild 23:32:52, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I think the images look fairly ugly and would detract from the presentation of the letter. We've linked them in the header, and I think that's enough we really should do in terms of presenting the images.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 20:12, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Removed the FT Candidates category. Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Wilhelm II 06:11, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

transclusion[edit]

I think that there are very interesting subtleties missing in this page which appear in the original document, for example, something seemingly trivial like crossing out "truly" and inserting "faithfully" at "very faithfully yours," TR, although business-minded at all times, cemented a lot of culture and history in NY and the surrounding area which we benefit from to this day, and he certainly was "faithful". My point is simply that we need to include these things, as they are part of the scan. Or, find a published "clean" version and separate the two. Without any opposition, I will probably start inserting the changes and notes he made into the Page files. Whether or not they remain on this particular page, or get transcluded to something else is fine. - Theornamentalist (talk) 13:17, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't like how the lengthy handwritten text is rendering; going to try and fix it. - Theornamentalist (talk) 16:32, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
