Overseas disposal
Original keepsakes
Destroying to preserve
It can be brutal
The Ace comb effect
Virgin mummies
Already worthless
A chance to begin again
Dingy, dreary, dog-eared, and dead
The preservation microfilming office
Thugs and pansies
Really wicked stuff
Getting the champagne out of the bottle
Bursting at the seams
The road to Avernus
It's not working out
Double fold
A new test
Great magnitude
Special offer
3.3 million books, 358 million dollars
Six thousand bodies a day
Burning up
Going, going, gone
Absolute nonsense
Unparalleled crisis
Slash and burn
A swifter conflagration
A figure we did not collect
Leaf masters
Turn the pages once
Suibtermanean convumision
Honest disagreement
We just kind of keep track
In good faith
