According to the attached web site, The archival community embraced lamination in the early 1930s as a means of strengthening fragile papers.

It is reasonably possible that many of the physical alterations to Booth's diary did not take place until the 1930's, with the exception to 18 missing pages
Based upon that article, it is certainly logical that it would be unlikely that pages were taken out and some laminated and put back in before the 1930's.

That would be long after Stanton was Secretary of War. That's my thoughts for now.

Right, because we just can't admit that the diary is clear evidence of a cover-up by the War Department.

You know, you guys get frazzled when I refer to Seeing the Emperor's New Clothes, but it's this kind of refusal to acknowledge compelling evidence that reminds me of the story of The Emperor's New Clothes.

Now, I'll tell you what: Let's just bracket the whole issue of lamination, since it really doesn't prove anything anyway. Laminating a page doesn't change its content, doesn't remove content, doesn't hide content, etc.

The real issue is the massive removal of pages (86 pages), the clearly surgical/targeted removal of portions of pages, and the moving of sections.

When the diary was finally released following Baker's confirmation of its existence and investigators found that 18 pages were missing, nobody denied that this was very suspicious. Instead, all the parties who had handled the book denied that they had removed any pages. But you guys can't even seem to bring yourselves to admit what most Americans realized at the time: that there should not have been 18 pages missing from the diary (much less 86).

If they had had modern technology and had realized that 86 pages were missing and that some sections had been moved, that would have been viewed as all the more suspicious. But you folks seem determined to once again "see no evil" when it's staring you in the face. I mean, my goodness, you folks can't even admit that the diary should have been entered into evidence at the conspiracy trial.

And I'm guessing that no one here will ever both to read Don Thomas's 13-page analysis of the FBI report on the diary in his book The Reason Booth Had to Die (chapters 8 and 9). The Kindle edition of the book is only $4 on Amazon, and you can read it on Amazon (they have a free online Kindle reader that opens on the Amazon site).
