Elizabeth Shand

How might we record the "brackets" in these pages? They appear like cursive "E"s to bracket topics within each subject. For example, on the top of the verso page (~4th line, beginning with the number 6), Mitchell writes "One God" and brackets "Voice of nation. Of Revelation." next to that. There are several more instances throughout.

I have used "{" for now, with the first phrase "Voice of nation" running into the same line as "One God" and "Of Revelation" on a new line. Might these rather be encoded as cells in a table?

Perhaps the best way for readability would be to start the "{" section on the next line, rather than the same. I think using the curly brackets the way you did makes sense. I don't think we should table encode these instances, as the readability might not translate well.
