orion Unrolling Scrolls

	I can't imagine a better place to ask this question. I have in my
possession an Esther Scroll from the 19th century that is in great shape
except that the very first column of text cannot be unwound from the
roller to which it is attached. It seems stuck to the roller. Does anyone
have any advice on how to unroll this last column without damaging it. I'd
like to be able to take care of this by Purim!

I'd appreciate any advice. What did Sukenik use on Isaiah? MJ

Rabbi Eleazar Hakappar used to say: You were conceived without being 
consulted, you were born without being consulted, you live without being 
consulted, and you'll die without being consulted. And without being 
consulted, you are going to account for yourself before the King of Kings 
of Kings, The Blessed Holy One. (Avot 4:29)

He did NOT say: "Have a nice day!"
