The letters Osho wrote to Anandmayee have several recurring features which are noted in the table below so as to discern any patterns. Potential patterns revolve around a few things:

1. Blue numbers in circles are found in most letters so far. Some of them also have a red tick mark in the upper left area above the salutation. It is not known who wrote these numbers, when or why.
2. Dates: File numbers of letters with known dates so far are in chronological order. It may be that the undated ones appear in that same chronological order, amongst them.
3. The "115" in the Mahakoshal / Yogesh Bhavan letterhead is handwritten, and is actually missing in some letters.
4. Watermark Some letters have a watermark, "JUPITER BOND", in ALL-CAPS, with "JUPITER" arcing over "BOND". Last letter "D" is stylized.
File #   Date Blue # Red-tick-mark.jpg "115" notes and comments
786 22 Nov 1960 none no Y no "blue #" in circle but a black "no. 1" upper center
787 undated 2 yes N has a watermark, but backward, as if printed on Verso
788 25 Nov 1960 3 yes ---- different letterhead
789 29 Nov 1960 4 no Y
790 undated 5 yes Y
791 8 Dec 1960 5 no N same number 5 as 790
792 15 Dec 1960 pm 6 yes Y has a pale blue "7" without a circle in the middle (it looks as footprint from other sheet) in addition to its "6", + has a watermark
793 15 Dec 1960 om 6 no Y same remarks as 792 but has no watermark, nb written EARLIER than 792
794 27 Dec 1960 5 yes N but the "blue 5" is scratched out, and the red tick is on the right side, not the left
795 3 Jan 1961 none yes N date on top, pale blue "6" (no circle) in middle top, and red tick is on the right side
796 5 Jan 1961 none no N no marks except an undecipherable pale blue one middle right. "Appendix" format whereby all three family members addressed separately? Has a watermark, backward.
798 2? Feb 1961 none no N no marks except a pale blue scribble middle top. "Postscript" only format, addressing two unreadable names. "2?" signifies twenty-something. **
799 28 Feb 1961 xm none no N no marks except a pale blue scribble middle top, very similar to 798's scribble. Addressed only to Anandmayee.

Sarloji, my proposal for undated letter is to keep them in guessed period, i.e. to put them near by known letters. E.g. Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 001 to Timeline 1960. Or will we cut off guessed period and to put them to Timeline year unknown?--DhyanAntar 06:48, 7 November 2019 (UTC)


New organization of the data above keeps them arranged in file # order, so it's easy to keep track. The undated ones can go in Timeline year unknown, actually MUST go there, but there they can have the year as "1960?" or whatever year /month their dated adjacent file #s have. The blue numbers may eventually assist in pointing toward their place in the chrono order. Or may not. -- doofus-9 07:55, 7 November 2019 (UTC)


And the blue numbers and red ticks keep getting weirder and more chaotic. Hard to imagine they will ever point to something systematic. -- doofus-9 06:33, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
