Hi Allen,

To expand on the mail I just sent to the list stating that I only have six unbound leaves (one of them being the mysterious one without holes for binding), I can say that I have no clear indication of which part of the manuscript the leaf might stem from. As pagination normally occurs in the left margin, and as all my leaves are broken off at the ends, I only have the context of the contents to go from, and that obviously does not apply to the leaf under discussion.

As you mention yourself, doodling does not exactly seem to be the case here, but the relation of the leaf to the rest of the manuscript is definitely worth taking into considering.
