But as far as i see here is no evidence that PS BELONGS to this letter: different papers and letterheads; sheet with letter folded in 2 pieces but sheet with PS was folded in 4 pieces. Unlikely they both were in one invelope.<!--tagAntarToDo-->--DhyanAntar 08:32, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

That's very good and quite right as far as it goes, but someone put these two pieces of paper together for some reason, that someone likely being Anandmayee or one of her estate / children. While it is theoretically possible that the reason is not that they belong together as parts of one letter, that is surely the most likely, and a different position would be extreme, it seems to me. The different fold patterns are far less likely to be significant than their being placed together. -- doofus-9 08:06, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

The first place to look for the mate to an unknown PS is nearby file numbers. Thus, for the "Unknown PS" at File:Sohan img605.jpg we look at 604 and 606. And because this batch of letter images has been "cleaned up", it is helpful to look at the original files in G**gle Drive. There it becomes crystal clear: The sheets of paper that comprise these two letter-bits are photographed together at right angles back-to-back, and numbered 604 and 605. These images are reproduced here.

The clincher is the bleed-through information between one image and the other:

1. The very distinctive letterhead -- so far unique among those Osho has used for his letters -- is seen clearly (in reverse) protruding above the sheet the PS is written on.
2. The last part of the PS sticks out from the left side (in reverse) of the main sheet.
3. There is a mark made on the back side of the PS that can be seen (in reverse) showing through faintly on the image of the PS.
4. Above the letterhead the paper is cut serrated, with a piece torn off. That same damage is seen (mirror-image) on the sheet sticking up from the PS sheet.

And so on. As it happens, much of this bleed-through info is lost in the cleaned-up versions being used to illustrate the page. Thus, it is useful to maintain the original files on Drive at least for a while for research such as this. -- doofus-9 06:56, 13 February 2020 (UTC)


All above info says that these two sheets of paper were indeed in one plastic file, i.e. together back to back.

But as far as i see here is no evidence that PS BELONGS to this letter: different papers and letterheads; sheet with letter folded in 2 pieces but sheet with PS was folded in 4 pieces. Unlikely they both were in one invelope.--DhyanAntar 08:32, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
