Some proofreading for Princeton:

Your first sentence should read "Three times each month" with times plural, not singular.

Also in the following where should be were:
"Altogether 186 plates where issued,"

And in this:
"Note the watermark on their hand-made paper."
Whose hand-made paper? Why not say "the hand-made paper"?
