Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The boxes lid has been taped in several places. The bottom interior of the box has been drawn in. A blue house, with a black roof and a red chimney. Someone also was practicing their cursive writing inside of the box. " A hul ...... lsunie Brebeee." Most likely a child did. The blocks are in various conditions, most have pencil graphite around their edges from being traced. Many have some remaining black thin material in spots on one side of the letter, as if it was covered in something or decorated on that one side. Glue often remains aswell. Three pieces from maybe several letters remains, and the two bright pink paper decorations are somewhat tattered, very crumpled looking.
