Notes under the door

A packet of papers is found slipped under the door where the party is staying at the hostel. The outermost page is an unsigned note, written in a clear hand:

Please take this copy of my notes. I fear I find myself in grave danger, and I worry about their safety. You may find them useful on your expedition. I will return for them when and if I am able. Thank you for your kindness last evening.


The rest of the pages are neat, truncated notes written in the same hand.
