The exception taken to paper evidence is, at best, an important caveat against carelessness. 32 For instance, it ought to be possible to analyze the watermarks of the correspondence in the State Papers, Cotton, Lansdowne, and Tanner manuscripts and calculate the number of strays against the number of items as a whole.
