Note 1: Information about the form. Most of it had been completed with a typewriter; only the italicized portions were handwritten. For this online version, it was also necessary to change the format slightly so the information would make sense. The form was columnar, and read left to right in this online version, the data would not flow as intended. Similarly, the word “No” regarding types or prior punishment had to be repeated each time here. In the original document, and in our print version of the English translation, the word “No” appeared only once with a line drawn to the right, indicating it applied to all responses.
