And here is the original piece once again, including a percentage listing of its incendiary components; the outer layer is sulphur, now turned to gray. 4 small oak sticks and layers of linen are meant for stabilization and controled delay of the burning time. A remainder of a piece of matchcord for ignition can be seen.

Best,
Michael
