Dear readers of the first printing,

Like you, I was dismayed to find that there had been a printing error with several pages of THE BRIDGE. In particular, the error relates to any handwritten words by any character, and those errors exist on pages 14, 35, 42, 48, 49, 65, 66, 67, and 102. If you squint really hard you may be able to make them out, or if you photograph them and enlarge the photograph, that too might work.

This PDF includes each of those pages as they were sent to the printer. I am so sorry that this happened, and please know the error is being corrected in a second printing.
