In spite of my best efforts, the keyboard diagram in my previous 
message was mangled somewhere in the email system. The leading space 
on the first line was converted to two spaces. (On the Bell 
Historians group at Yahoo, it's even worse - *all* of the multiple 
spaces were converted to single spaces.) But just for the sake of 
accuracy, let's try a different pseudo-graphical technique:

If the baton clavier transposes to the key of C (as is typical), then 
the arrangement of the Upper and Lower rows of keys should look like 

U: .#.-...#.-.#...#.-...#.
L: O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O.O

"O" represents a "white" note
"#" represents a "black" note present
"-" represents a "black" note absent
"." represents a space between adjacent keys (and above or below a 
key in the opposite row)

This still won't display properly in the message archives on the 
Website, because Yahoo doesn't use a monospaced font to display 
messages. Too bad.
