1865 contains our first case of a document with multiple senders, and this was unexpected so it broke the page. Fixed the bug in XSLT and in XQuery.

Welcome to our new Directed Reading student

LR started work today. I've created a detailed Google Doc laying out the expected progress of the work, and we spent an hour getting everything set up and booking time.
