Well, I have the scanner and the time, I am going to put in online anyways.
It may not be the full source, but perhaps it will come in handy for
someone else.
 I only spent a few minutes scanning those 12 pages. It was a just a quick
initial run of the scanner to learn how to operate it and save the images.
Once i get it all scanned, I will post a link to it.
