Hi Russel, I came across several other Fonceca's. The film is very faint in parts and difficult to read. I will list what I was able to decipher. If you let me have your snail mail address I will send you photocopies. I doubt if it will be all that useful as the quality of the printer at the Library is not very good, but you may be able to distinguish details my tired old eyes cannot pick up.   Gilbert Raymond 19/10/1999
