The large cans you sent is I think thick enough for my purposes-but in case of my [unclear], it must be long enough between joints for [unclear] to cut in [unclear] such lengths. The cut to be made at least one half inch inside the joint at both ends. My experience have been that you have to cut it about [unclear--edge of page torn/folded--leave for editors]"
