Note: The English text is 42 pages in length and the Hebrew text is only 32 pages in length. The translator did not calibrate the foot note page references. Therefore the footnote page references in the English version are not accurate and the reader must interpolate to locate the reference citations.

Note: Page 27 of the Hebrew version is missing from this scan. The document will be rescanned when time permits.
