All the newsletters of the Canadian Revenue Study Group were available online except for No. 77 from the first series. It turns out that No. 77 was mis-numbered No. 76, and it was available online. The missing issue was the "real" No. 76. Thanks to Ralph E. Trimble who provided a PDF version of the missing No. 76, and cleared up the confusion about No. 77.

Also, issue No. 160 was not available online because of an error in the newsletter listing. The error has been corrected, and this issue is now available.
