I thought I lost out on a job application because the seraphim poked up

I don't see why Lojbab would object to photocopying you them. The first two
are quite dry, containing lots of dictionary work; they are of interest in

at the time. The next two outline the circumstances of the split, and have
a deal of historical interest.
