Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I just was outbid on this interesting piece of paper from the factory. Picture source is from the lost eBay bid. Ha, I beat the dog out with my zapper program at the last second---it is mine at $12 :dance: A nice piece of Morgan Factory History!
This prayer is a modification of the old Christian/Catholic childrens prayer we learned as kids: "Now I lay me down to sleep"

A nice original document to go with my lamp and ashtrays :shifty: Photo of paper document shown below. I am also providing a second similar prayer.
There must have been different take offs of this prayer.... Here is a source to a second version dated 1919.
see :

A second different version from the above link, looks like they did not have the full version; This is from the ( Journal of Electricity, January 15 1919, Vol. 42, No. 2 ) Both prayers most likely date to WW I 1919.
