     Notebook in vestibule:
Beware the eye of Mara.  The mural of Mara. Item #14-B.  Painted
with egg and natural pigments on wet plaster - has held up
remarkably well.  The benevolent god Mara stands with closed
eyes as a warning do not look into his eyes!!
The gifts of Mara.  These ancient artifacts are found in the great
inner temples: --The amulet of future knowledge. One glance into
this mystic amulet will give you visions of future events!  --The
bowl of earthly riches. This overflowing bowl is filled with gold
and gems which are free for the taking!  --The fountain of eternal
youth: one sip from this mystic vessel will restore youth to the
aged and vigor to the ill!!

     I concur with your findings.  Visitors were lured to the
temple with the promises of gifts, but once they looked into the
eyes of the god they were doomed.  I believe you can gain access
to the inner temple if you avoid this trap!
Good Luck

Today I'm trying out the hidden passage we talked about.  I'm
convinced it leads to the "Jewel of Power."  I know you wanted to
go with me but I need you out here to keep the tourists in line.
If one of them decides to go eyeball to eyeball with the god, its
adios amigo.  Indiana

Sallah, Learned of the news of Indy's disappearance.  Study all
references to the "gates of doom."  They seem to guard the "Jewel
of Power" perhaps Indy made it past the lethal force of that trap
then he would have found the immense cavern where the Jewel is
stored.  Abner Ravenwood

     Greetings, good work cleaning out that infernal spike chamber!

Professor, Marcus Brody informed us that you have located the
temple.  We are anxiously awaiting reports.  By the way, an old
friend of yours-a Dr. Bellog-called and I passed along your
whereabouts to him.  I believe he wants to join you at the site:
Best of Luck.

Rotten luck Reports of "Temple of the Forbidden Eye" have hit the
newspapers and newsreels.  It's shaping up to be the biggest thing
since Santa Claus.  Counting on you to control the feeding frenzy
until I return.  Have deciphered a new map that may dead to the
power source of the temple.  I intend to try.  Watch out for that
snake Bellog!  Indiana

Dear Indy,
     Received the rubbings yesterday.  Pictographs tell of
gifts þ eternal beauty, riches, et cetera.  But warning in the lower
left was added at a much later date.  Something about eyes and
death.  I can't quite make it out.  I'm still working on it.

Lost Delta Encampment,

     So you have found the mysterious temple of the forbidden eye!
Congratulations!  But please proceed with caution.  Sources in
Calcutta tell me this temple of yours has a darker side.  Legend
has it that Pilgrims who were lured there with promises of great
gifts were never seen again!
Yours truly,
Abner Ravenwood

Letters in Indy's office:

June 4,1935
     Greetings old friend.  Here is the missing piece of the temple
map!  Fortune truly shines on the pure of heart! (and he who has
a brother-in-law in the black market!)  God go with you and I will
join you as well.

     Received your letter detailing Indy's disappearance inside the
temple.  I am leaving at once.  I suggest you keep the tours
running.  Perhaps one of them will locate Indy.
Marcus Brody

Notes on Maps, Rubbings and Drawings:

Temple of the forbidden eye, Lost delta region, India.  Discovered
by Dr. Indiana Jones Circa 1935 - Flood debris.  It is theorized
that the temple was buried in a flood over 2004 years ago.  Much
of the temple, however, was built in underground chambers. [in red]
Watch out for the crocks.  Get some reinforcements up here before
a stone falls and kills someone, Indy.

Snake column braziers once used to light ceremonial fires.  Bas
relief in 'promise of youth' corridor - note empty husk of elder.
Wall paintings in promise of youth corridor depicting the old
transforming into the youthful.

Common Motif found throughout the temple complex:
Bowl: Earthly Riches
Jug: Fountain of Youth
Amulet: Future Vision

Bas relief found in hall of promise
Indy believes the bas relief depicts Mara looking into the minds
of his worshipers to discover their greatest secret desire - note
eyes are closed so it is safe to look at this Mara.

Youthful Mara statue A 612 13X found in the promise of youth
corridor - 12'-0" approx.

Absolutely no snakes in my office!! Indy.
