The paper is yellowing, embrittled, and flaking away; the top left corner of most pages is torn where a staple once was. The manuscript includes grammatical and typographical edits in ink. The speech begins on what is labeled on the document as page 4 and ends on page 15, apparently in mid-sentence.
In addition to the tear where a staple once was in the top left corner, the paper is torn in the top right corner. Also, a section of the bottom right part of the paper has been torn away, leaving a hole.
