Paris - September 1916
(Mata Hari episode - letter over 2 pages)

Henry Jones Sr to Prof Jacques Levi

Address:
Prof. Jaques Levi
12 Rue de Seine
Paris

Dear Jacques
I would like to ask a favor on behalf of my son, Henry Jones jr. When he has his next leave he will surely go to Paris. A a cultural center it is too good to miss.

War is a fools game. If he hasn't figured this out, have faith that he soon will. Any help you may give him in extracting himself from his obligations will be greatly appreciated by me. You may inform him that I greatly encourage him to renew his educational pursuits at the university of his choice. He need no longer concern himself about my view in this matter.

Thank you my dear friend for your kindness in helping with this most difficult personal conflict.

With great appreciation

Henry Jones

1917
Emperor Karl of Austria to the allies.
This letter is on white paper with a crest on the top of the paper.

To the British, Belgian and French governments

I, his Imperial Majesty, Emperor Karl of Austria-Hungary sue for peace for which I am prepared to grant the following concessions:
1. Austria to recognize French sovereignty of Alsace-Lorraine
2. Belgian sovereignty to be recognized
3. Serbian sovereignty to be recognized.

Nice. So the what the king page says is in the original journal right? Also is the font handwritten? Or is there a type of font that is like Indy's handwriting in the show? And I did discover this. It is a scanned page from magnolis diary replica buts also an original page so hope that's ok to post. But he had little giraffe under the big one. And I tried to make it more accurate to the original page.

What the Emperor says are the demands from the Allies that Indy delivered to him. The top part of the letter is read out aloud on the train the end of the episode and a you see a brief section in the same episode where you see the Emperor writing the letter.
 
Found another diary page. It's the same one on the DVD boxset but this one is in color like the orignal page, the only difference is the handwriting isn't correct like the boxset one.

Just made this. It's a recreated page of the drawing and what was written on the left side. The drawing was done by ai.
But if someone would like to redo the page with the accurate drawing and handwriting. That would be very helpful.

A lot of progress with new pages being made here. Someone on facebook is also tracking down new pages now. Hopefully at some point we'll get to see a full diary.
 
I made a new banner or something like that for the Young indiana jones fan club on Facebook. Or it can be also for a new project titled: Making A Screen Accurate Young Indy Diary or The Hunt For The Original Journal Prop.

Still waiting A word back from Lucasfilm, I hope they'll answer soon...

Did some more editing on the recreated pages with a better font and was able to find a 1909 map of Africa and find the missing places names. Also did some work on deshipering on one of the Original pages from some screen shots.

I was able to find some more words for the recreated Mexico map Drawing for looking at some banners and backgrounds. The page is still missing a few words though.

Here's an interesting map which might prove useful for diaries showing colonial Africa and the old names used.

For those using a font for their diaries (which I am also doing) I found FG Rochelle regular to be convincingly close to the handwriting used in the screen used diary.

For indydiary51, I have all the text deciphered for that page, coming partially from a source I found, from Indy Magnoli’s photos of his work, and from matching and puzzling low resolution letters until it seemed to fit. I will post the text I have this week when I am next at my computer. I similarly have the giraffes text filled (though some was guess work) but I’ve been really impressed with the new pages found in the DVD set and from the screenshots! I’m excited to add them to my own diary though I’m going to have to figure out what to cut out since I’m trying to fit everything (all the way to Dial of Destiny) in one 300 page Magnoli Journal. I’ve got almost 280 pages filled in my master file so and I’ve yet to do DOD or the upcoming Indy Video Game! A fun problem to have though.

This is a problem. I used a Magnoli diary and wrote up a time line of Indy stories. My diary was written to end at Fate of Atlantis. Simply put there's too much Indy content available. TV, Movies, Comics, Novels, Games, Rides etc. I had to chop a lot to be even able to finish the book where I did.

I ended up dropping the Marvel Comics. I included the novels which filled in the gap at the end of the TV series until temple of Doom. Added in one of the small Dark Horse comics and 'forbidden eye' into the mix. But you also have the extra episodes outlined that were never filmed as well. To fit in the Magnoli diary you need to keep your stories concise and fit to 1-3 pages maximum. However the stories got big when it got to the movies as I had the 'lost diary' to work with and try and integrate. There are lot of different ways to do these books and you can choose any focus you want but you'll never get it all in there...

Yeah, I agree there are countless ways to do it. I’m including the TV, Movies, YA English novels, English novels, some but maybe not all of the German novels, the dark horse comics but not the marvel, the video games, and I think that’s it. I’m also not including the non-filmed TV episodes. It’s very tempting but at the end of the day it requires a lot more guesswork, and they weren’t actually made, so I had to draw the line somewhere. I’ve been using Magnoli’s work as a guide since it’s what first inspired me to do this, and have been including the Lost Journal. My approach has also been, for the most part, to put inserts over text, which helps a bit. And since im doing it all digitally I expect to have too many pages to fit, then pare it down.

You have to be careful with the inserts they can bulk up the book very quickly. They are a fun part of doing this but the choice of what to use can be tricky. I ended up with a combination of pages I could find...some margoli, some lost diary, some comic, some props I lifted from the TV series like letters etc. And the tv series also has some diary entries in it like the one in Feburary 1919 at the peace conference where he writes Arnold Toynbee's quote at the top of a page: "Those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it".

Also there are some errors and time line glitches in the lost diary to watch out for.
