Re: Wanted: Page 63 of Easy Greek Reader, by Abbott

Unfortunately, I do not have access to this book (even a preview of the pages) :( . I can not find this copy avaiable in any other site different from Google Books. Could you take a print of the page for me?

Thanks!

Wanted: Page 63 of Easy Greek Reader, by Abbott

Dear all,

The Archive copy of the book Easy Greek Reader - Abbott is missing page 63 here. Even the ``Forgotten Books" edition uses the copy (from Stanford University) without page 63. Please, if you have this page, upload this to archive and/or put here (a photo, a scan, anything :D )
