Translation and hidden message of the scribe backpack(s)

With the release of HoT ArenaNet added plenty of text in New Krytan and Asuran for us to translate. One you might not have been aware of is that the paper found on all scribe backpacks have a long message written on them.
Because these are impossible to read in game I decided to fetch one of the textures from the DAT and translated it.. looks like ArenaNet is on to me.. enjoy!

SCRIBING FOR BOOKAHS
Special first edition
Part 1: Paper
Any Scribe worth their salt knows that
low quality paper leads to ink bleeding,
diminished life span of the scroll and
increased risk of visual strain during use.
Universally a schematic written on poor
paper is more generally suited for
cleaning the viscous liquid excreted from the
airways of its intended reader.
New Scribes, of course, will not be able to
comprehend the intricacies of paper
creation, so the first section of this
lesson will, instead, cover the proper
procedures involved in the cleaning
of inkwells and quills.
If you've read this far perhaps
you do have what it takes to be
a Scribe. After all it is an
impressive feat to mine this
scroll from the archives.
