    What interesting documents! I’m surprised they had to have his consent to open his mail. His habits: chews and drinks….but does’t include smoking. Religion is listed as “none”–very unusual at that time, I would think. Unexpected question: age when he left home. I thought he was older than 47 from the photos. Slight build. Why the letter “W” below the finger prints? If that’s what it is.
